Fresh CA avocados are the feature of our guacamole! We're bringing in some traditional flavors or onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and tomatoes and brightening it up with some fresh lime juice and Cholula! This is very easy and healthy and a great app before dinner!
What to get:
  • 3 large avocados, ripe
  • 1.5 tsp jalapeño, deseeded & chopped finely
  • 2 tbsp ripe tomato, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sweet onion, chopped finely
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp prepared salsa, (fresh, medium heat)
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 2 dashes Cholula hot sauce, chile lime variety
  • 1 T fresh cilantro, chopped finely
  • ¼ tsp seasoning salt (more or less depending on taste)
  • dash ground black pepper
What to do:
  1. slice avocados in half, length-wise around pit.
  2. Remove pits.
  3. Scoop avocado flesh into medium mixing bowl.
  4. Deseed and chop a small jalapeño, chop a tomato, cilantro and onion.
  5. Add chopped ingredients to avocado.
  6. Add lime juice, salsa, S&P, and Cholula to taste.
  7. Mix well, leaving some chink and serve with chips!
Notes:
Ripe avocados are the key! I leave a pit in the main bowl if there will be leftovers, to help counteract the avos turning brown. Season to the level you prefer, mine has a kick but is not too spicy. Add more or less cilantro and jalapeño to your liking. Also, you may want to add more salt at the end after tasting.
