Have you ever gotten tired of making a certain dish everyone loves, but one that you are totally over? This would be my guacamole. It is by far the best guacamole you will ever taste. Its just that I could make it in my sleep, tied to a chair, wrapped in duck tape in a large cooler at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. I thought if I post this recipe, people will stop asking and I can start bringing what I really want to when invited to a party. This happened recently. The word on the street was "it tastes must do something that your not telling us about.." I really didn't. Most recently, someone made this guacamole with rock hard avocados, not a good idea . If your making it on a Saturday, buy the avocados on Wednesday and let them soften. If they are rock hard, stick them in a paper bag and throw them in the back of a cabinet for a few days. If they are still hard on your party day, please don't make guacamole (head to Wawa and nuke some spicy Cheese wiz). I usually dice everything up in the morning, except the avocados as they turn brown. Later when your guests arrive, scoop out the avocados and mix with the other ingredients.

  • 4 to 5 soft Hass Avocados
  • small red onion diced small
  • 1 clove garlic diced
  • Handful of chopped cilantro ( I love cilantro and use quite a bit..start with about 1/2 a cup chopped fine)
  • 1 small tomato ( traditional guacamole does not have tomato, I however like the color of the tomato when everything is mixed together).
  • 1 jalapeno diced fine
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper

Chop cilantro, dice onion, garlic, jalapeno and tomato. Skin and remove pits of avocados. Dice into large chunks. Add lime juice and salt and pepper. Mix together. Leaving some avocado chunks. Place in a serving bowl, garnish with limes and cilantro. Serve with fresh chips.
