This post is written in solidarity with the Mexicans.  We Brazilians know how it feels to have another team score 7 on you.  Sorry you had to go through that.  It’s not the end of the world.  In a year or two you will feel better.  In the meantime, keep drinking tequila.  According to a good Brazilian friend, Tequila is the best alcoholic beverage because it has the least amount of calories/carbs.  It will destroy your liver but that’s another story.

5 or 6 ripe Haas avocados
2 chopped tomatoes
1 chopped red onion
1 lime
chopped cilantro
coarse salt
fresh red chili pepper

Place the chili peppers in a mortar with the salt and some a few teaspoons of the chopped tomatoes.  Mash until combines.  Add a tiny bit of water.

Peel and cut the avocados into chunks.  Place in a bowl and squeeze lime over the avocados to keep them from browning.  Mash the avocados slightly with a fork, leaving some random chunky pieces.  Add the onions, chopped cilantro and chopped tomatoes.  Stir until combined.  Taste and re-season with more salt and chili pepper pieces.


Dedico o texto de hoje aos Mexicanos.  Coitados-comeram sete gols.  Nós sabemos como é comer sete gols.  O mundo não acabou.  Logo, logo eles recuperam.  Enquanto isso podem continuar bebendo tequila.  Uma amiga Brasileira me ensinou que a tequila é a melhor bebida alcoólica porque contém menos calorias que qualquer outra.  Arrasa o fígado, mas você fica magra.

5 ou 6 abacates maduros
2 tomates picados
1 cebola vermelha picada
1 limão
coentro picado
sal grosso
pimenta malagueta (fresquinha tirada do pé)

Coloque a pimenta num pilão e amasse com o sal e duas colheres do tomate picado.  Adicione um pouquinho de agua (uma colher de sopa).

Descasque e corte o abacate.  Coloque numa tigela e esprema o limão por cima para evitar que o abacate mude a cor.  Amasse o abacate com um garfo.  (Deixe alguns pedaços maiores).  Acrescente a cebola picada, o coentro e os tomates picados.  Prove e tempere com mais sal e/ou pimenta malagueta.
