Holy Guacamole

Guacamole

Avocados are amazing. In my house, we all love them. I can’t keep up with buying them.  They are expensive! I complain because I find my husband’s avocado pits all over in cups because he has been trying to grow an avocado tree for years. But I wish he’d grow one already. It would save us some money!

When my 10 year old gets home from school he usually asks for guacamole and chips.  That’s when I smash an avocado, drizzle with EVOO and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  But this recipe I bring out on special occasions. It’s really tastes amazing! I can’t let my family know I’m making it because they eat it up with a spoon before I even put it on the table.

TIPS:  Once you see your avocados getting too ripe, put them in the fridge.  It will keep them fresh for a long time! 

Once you make the guacamole keep the pits that you’ve taken out and put them in the bowl of guac to keep it fresh until ready to eat!  

Ingredients

  • 6 Haas Avocados
  • 2 limes
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 of an onion minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced(If you like it mild just use half)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro(Some people don’t like the taste of cilantro.  So you can skip it or use less)
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced

Directions

  1. Scoop out the insides of the avocados and place them in a medium bowl.
  2. Squeeze lime over avocados.  Toss to coat.
  3. Mash to make it smooth.
  4. Add salt, cumin and cayenne.  Mash again.
  5. Fold in the onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro and garlic.
  6. Put the avocado pits back in to keep it fresh until ready to serve.
