Spicy Guacamole

This makes a HUGE portion of guacamole but it is the only way I make it. It has become so popular and goes quickly (and lets be honest, you can never have enough guacamole.)  If you really don't need much, you can easily half this recipe.

You will need:

  • 6 Avocados
  • 1 Large Tomato, chopped
  • 1 Large Onion, chopped
  • 5 - 6 Jalapenos, chopped (depending on how spicy you want it)
  • 1 - 2 limes depending on how juicy they are
  • Fresh Cilantro (I go pretty light on the cilantro, that's just me)

I slice my avocados like this.  It is easy to do in the skin and it makes mashing go a lot faster!

Yummy avocado... add a little bit of salt here.  I usually just eyeball it, maybe a tsp or so.  You can always add more salt later...

Mash it all up to the consistency you like.  Sometimes I mix a few pits into the mix as well in hopes of it not browning.  (Not sure if it ever works or not but my guac is always green)

Throw all of your chopped goodies in the bowl together... Tomato, Onion, Jalapenos and Cilantro

*** Tip I learned from a friend, if you gently roll your jalapenos (like you do to lemons and limes to make them juicier) it will release the spice from the skin and will give your jalapenos a little more kick***
Add some lime juice and mix it all up!

Make sure you taste it here.  The flavors will combine more but this batch needed more salt and lime juice.

Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least a half hour, the flavors mix together and get better with time!

You did not tell me about it but I have heard that Frys is out of control! Let me know how it turns out friend. I eventually want to try making the "Guacatony" from Oreganos too...
