What is the one food you cannot resist? Some people love desserts, some people are chocolate fanatics… For me, the food that I absolutely cannot resist is guacamole!! Who’s with me??
With today being National Avocado Day, I thought the best way to honor that magical fruit (yes, fruit), would be to share my favorite guacamole recipe. I have toiled for years, with hundreds of different recipes for this heavenly treat. It’s taken countless hours, lots of burns from hot jalapenos, and LOTS of taste testing, to finally come up with the perfect combination of fresh ingredients for my WORLD FAMOUS guacamole. Okay, maybe not world-famous *yet*, but it will definitely leave your guests (or yourself) shouting “Holy Guacamole!!!!!”
juice of 1 lime
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3 tbsp. chopped cilantro
In a large bowl, add the peeled avocado and lime juice. Toss to coat, then mash. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix it up with a little tender love and care ;-). Build up the will power to let it sit for at least 30 minutes to give the flavors time to blend together, and Voila!!! You now have a crowd pleasing, amazingly delish, homemade guacamole to make all your dreams come true! (At least that’s how I feel about it).
** for those that like it extra spicy, add more cayenne!
