Filet mignon & guacamole sandwich on whole grain bread

We had gone to a French restaurant the night before, and being famished from my Pilates class as always, I took the five-course tasting menu. I was full after half of the appetizer which was the size of a main course! So obviously, when my filet mignon came along, I took two bites and had to settle for taking it home.

You know what? No regret!!! My BF actually said he wish he'd done the same because the next day, we had amazing sandwiches for lunch.

And the best part about making lunch when you just want to sit & enjoy the sun in the backyard, is not having to make it. Left-overs make the best meals sometimes!

Having that abundance of avocado, I made guacamole for the sandwiches. Great combo! It made me think of a Chilean Chacarero.

Quick guacamole
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • juice of half a lime
  • 1 Italian tomato, diced, without the seeds
  • a few branches of coriander, chopped
  • sea salt to taste
Roughly mash the flesh of the avocado in a medium bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice. Mix around for even coverage. Toss in the tomato and the coriander. Add salt to your liking.

Spread guacamole over toasted whole grain bread, or baguette, and top with sliced meat. What? Oh come on, don't tell me you don't have a left-over grilled steak somewhere in the fridge with this BBQ season!!!!!!

Now take a bite and "Hhhhhmmmmmmm...." Oh! And if you like it hot, squeeze some Sriracha in your sandwich.

Serve with tortilla chips to scoop up whatever guacamole left over or fallen out.

What an interesting combo! I always think beef with a horseradish sauce but guac sounds good too. I always end up with so much left over guac every time I make it just cuz there's only so many tortilla chips you can eat in the couple of days it takes for the guac to go bad!
