Grilled Sandwich with Avocado etc.,

Two things must be clarified at the very beginning. First, this could very well have been a grilled sandwich with guacamole in it, but the chef was unable to mash the avocado and second, I can really not take credit for this recipe.

My husband puts together the best guacamole in this world, with the correct ingredients that is. Guacamole requires that a fine ripe avocado be used in its preparation. Since the avocado at hand was not ripe enough to be mashed, he had no choice but to dice it with the rest of the ingredients.

Unusual circumstances call for unusual actions. I chucked the normal practice of using used it as a dip with the chips or in my burrito bowl and decided to use this “nearly there” guacamole to make a sandwich.

Diced avocado – 2 medium
Diced red onion – 1 small
Diced jalapeƱo - 1 medium
Diced tomato – 1 medium
Cumin powder – 1/2 tsp
Red chili powder – 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice – 4 tsp
Salt and pepper
Wheat bread – 4 slices
Butter – as desired
Grated pepper jack cheese – 4 tsp

Mix the first 8 ingredients. Store in an airtight box and refrigerate for 1 hour. Heat a skillet and lightly toast the wheat bread using butter. Spread a scoopful of the avocado mixture over one slice. Sprinkle half of the grated cheese on top. Close it with another slice of lightly toasted bread. Toast the sandwich for a couple of minutes more, flipping sides. Take it off the skillet, cut into half and serve with ketchup.
Hubby was a little disappointed with the avocados, I am not complaining though, it made a great sandwich.

Serving suggestions
·         With ketchup/salad/chips on the side.
·         You can use any kind of cheese; pepper jack goes best because of it being closer in taste with the spice in the guacamole.

  Interesting fact
·         Avocado has a higher fat content than most fruits.
