One of the highlights of luxury retreats at Villa Perezoso’s guests’ stays is being able to relax and allow our very own Chef Over prepare and serve them his magnificently prepared feasts. One of the only luxury vacation villas in Manuel Antonio to have its own full time chef, guests staying at Villa Perezoso’s luxury retreats are guaranteed to be pampered by the Villa’s full staff on par with services expected from a luxury retreats five star resort.
Many of you have requested Chef Over’s OVER THE TOP guacamole recipe…here it is at last! From Villa Perezoso’s luxury retreats kitchen to yours.
The secret, as you shall see, is Salsa Lizano, which you can buy in Costa Rica or better yet, if you forgot to buy it on your recent trip, you can order some from Amazon.com.
Hint: Make sure you choose perfectly ripe avocados and fresh lemon or lime juice. You can double this recipe if for a large crowd. And…guacamole freezes beautifully; just let it sit out to thaw (save the pit!).
Villa Perezoso’s Guacamole Recipe
2 ripe avocado’s
1 T finely chopped onion (we prefer white onions)
1 T finely chopped cilantro
1-2 T fresh lemon or lime juice (start w/ 1 and taste before adding a 2nd)
1/8 t sea salt
½ T Salsa Lizano
Mash up the avocados with a fork and add remaining ingredients. If not serving right away, be sure to save the pit and place on top of the guacamole to keep it from darkening. Serve with either store bought tortilla chips or better yet, fry up some of your own from corn tortillas. Mmmmm.
