While we were in San Miguel, Dan and I took a cooking class at Sazon. Sazon is a beautiful shop located in an old casa just off the main plaza in San Miguel. We just happened to walk in minutes before the class started and even though they were full, they made room for us. The class was a demonstration not an actual hands on experience, but very informative. We got to eat the food that was prepared and it was all very good. At $600 pesos ( around $60 American) a person, the class wasn't cheap, but there was a lot of food and it was a great way to spend 2 hours. Sazon is located at Correo #22, Centro-San Miguel de Allende-Gto, Mexico 37700, you can visit their website at http://www.sazon.com/ .
4 large ripe avocados
1 small white onion, minced
4 serrano chiles, minced
1 small tomato, diced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced (in the class she added around 1 teaspoon)
Salt to taste
Cut avocados in half lengthwise, remove pits and scoop out flesh with spoon. Place in a mixing bowl and mash with fork, an old fashioned potato masher or use a molcajete. You want the avocados to be lumpy. Add onion, chiles, cilantro and lime juice. Save some onion and cilantro for garnish. Mix in tomatoes and season with salt. Place in a serving bowl and garnish with cilantro and onion. Serve with chips.
