Guacamole with Cherry Preserves

A few weeks ago Dave and I went out with some friends to a new Mexican restaurant in town. We split a really delicious habenaro jelly guacamole as an appetizer. I wanted to recreate that recipe, but when picking up the ingredients I thought it might be nice to do a sweet/savory guacamole. The habenaro jelly guacamole will need to wait for another blog.

A Vegetarian & Cooking! original.

-3 avocados
-1 jalapeno, diced
-1 shallot, diced
-Lime juice
-Salt, to taste
-Cherry preserves
-Tortilla chips.
Remove the skin from the avocado.

Add the diced jalapeno and shallot.
Add a dash of salt and a little lime juice.

Mix together, make a crater for the preserves. 

Add several tablespoons of cherry preserves.

Serve with tortilla chips.

This recipe was phenomenal. The sweetness of the cherry preserves went well with the flavors of the guacamole. It also went well with the saltiness of the tortilla chips. The savory of the avocado and the sweetness of the cherry is just a great combination.
