Guacamole con Chiles Toreados
- 2 jalapeño chiles
- 4 scallions
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 3 ripe avocados, halved, meat scooped out and diced
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
Char the jalapeños and scallions on a preheated comal or skillet over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, flipping often, until completely charred, wrinkled and softened. You can also do this under the broiler.
Once nicely softened and charred, slice the jalapeños and scallions and place in a medium bowl with the soy sauce and lime juice. Stir and let marinate for at least 10 minutes, this makes for matador chiles or chiles toreados.
In a medium bowl or in a molcajete, mash the avocados. Mix in the matador chiles, scallions, 1/4 cup of the soy and lime mixture (reserve the remaining 1/4 cup for the milanesa torta if making), and the cilantro.
