In The Kitchen: Secret Guacamole

A Guacamole Recipe adapted from my own Mother’s famous recipe

  • 3 – 4 avocados
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 3 – 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded & finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 1 lime
  • handful of fresh cilantro

Cut avocados in a half and remove the pit.  Once the pit is removed, take 3 halves and empty into a bowl.  Begin by mashing with a fork, until broken down.  Take remainder avocado halves and score with a knife, first vertical and then horizontal, creating a pattern of squares.  Remove avocado from the skin into the bowl.  Through in onions, garlic, jalapeno, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, cilantro, and the juice of 1/2 a lime.  Once all ingredients are in the bowl, toss lightly.  You want to make sure you maintain the chucks of avocado.
