“Girls” Night Guacamole (the best guac I’ve ever had!)

Apparently watching the tv show “Girls” makes me want to eat green dips. I wrote a post a couple months ago about the spinach dip I made for an evening of “Girls”-viewing with friends, and when we had “Girls”-night Part 2, I begged my friend Liora to make her famous gaucamole.

This is truly the BEST guacamole I’ve ever had. And I have eaten a fair share of guac in my day. Liora was kind enough to figure out the measurements, but she said they can vary depending on your taste preferences.

Liora with her guacamole!

Liora’s AMAZING Gaucamole

3 avocados (ripe)
1 diced tomato (medium)
1/2 finely diced red onion
1/2 finely chopped jalapeno
1 handful chopped cilantro
1 and a 1/2 limes juiced
salt to taste

Mash avocado, add in veggies, juice, and salt. Mix. Serve.

So what’s our verdict on the show? Well, the group of women I watch with are a bunch of queer and/or feminist grad students (and some, specifically critical media studies grad students). That is to say: we have opinions. The show is problematic in a lot of ways—(once again there is a show set in New York that is entirely white)—-but potentially important in a lot of ways, too—(something interesting is happening with the non-normative body type of our protagonist, for example).

But this is not a blog about critical media studies. (If you’re interested in those things, you can visit my other blog.)

What you really want to know is the verdict on the guac. And trust me when I say: Best. Guacamole. Ever.

Do you like guacamole? Have you seen “Girls”? Do you like analyzing TV shows or just watching them for entertainment?

    I LOVE guacamole; I’m not sure if anyone doesn’t. my partner and I went on a real guac kick a couple years ago and they made one version with black beans mixed in, and another batch with raw corn. Both were spectacular. The jalapeno here seems like a great addition.
    As for Girls, I haven’t seen it – I don’t really bother with TV shows but I’ve heard some interesting reviews. most people seem to like it beyond it’s lack of people of color. Sometimes I wish I had a group of people to watch and analyze with, I usually don’t do that on my own. It’s good to have conversations. Will check out yr other blog – thanks for mentioning it. It sounds interesting.

      Ooo, black beans and corn sound like awesome addition! Yeah, I used to be kind of anti-TV too, but there is some fascinating things happening in pop culture these days, and I feel like it’s important to stay current as a teacher and a person who generally wants to see the world become a better place. Kind of good to see what the majority of US society is tuning into, ya know?

    I missed so many wonderfully documented vegan happenings here in the rebelgrrlkitchen. So happy to be caught up…love the roast veggies, the chocolate coconut cookies, and will take a good guac any night of the week, while watching / analyzing any TV show. Or for any other purpose, really. :)

    I missed so many wonderfully documented vegan happenings here at rebelgrrlkitchen. So happy to be caught up on the eggplant stir fries, roast summer veggies, coconut chocolate chip cookies (is that legal?), and the banging guac, which I will gladly consume while watching / analyzing any television show, any night of the week. Or anytime, really. :)

    PS — love the new layout!

    Yum yum yummo – just give me the bowl and a spoon! I haven’t seen Girls…. I am intrigued though (I did Gender studies at Uni so am always up for discussing this type of thing!) Will look it up!
