Guacamole Update, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya, Mexico

The above represents the fixings for three large batches of guacamole: 27 avocados, 6 jalapeños, 6 small tomatoes, 2 red onions, 3 limes, 1 bunch of cilantro, and salt.  The purchase price was 275 pesos  or approximately $21 USD.  When I return home I intend to price out the same quantity and quality and see what it costs in Massachusetts. It will be a lot more than $21 USD.

The end result sure is tasty though. Cumulatively, the count now stands at 331 avos between 1/1/14 and 2/19/14, usually the cost was in the 30-50 cents each range.

I am going to miss all this fresh produce when I return home to winter in the cold Northeast United States. Of course, we do have modern supermarkets with fresh food delivered all the time but, it's just not the same.


  1. Delicious! I am happy with guacamole for dinner anytime. This is quite a retirement life you are leading!
