Guacamole

We are on a Tex-Mex kick here on the blog and the next condiment that Dana and I wanted to make was Guacamole.  I love Alton Brown so I wanted to try out his version of the classic dish.  I must say that he hit a home run with it.  We used this recipe.  it was well balanced, not too spicy and downright delicious!

Guacamole

In a large bowl scoop out the avocado pulp.  Then stir in the dried spices (salt, cumin and cayenne) and then mash it all together with a potato masher.

Guacamole Mash it Good

Juice a lime and pour it over mashed avocado.  Fold it in.  This will prevent the avocado from turning brown. Drain the excess lime juice from the avocado and reserve it.

Dice up the onion, tomatoes and seeded jalapeno.   Add it to the avocado mixture.  Then mince garlic and the cilantro and add it to the mixture. Stir.

Add the tomatoes and cilantro

Then add 1 tbs of the lime juice to the guacamole and stir.

Guacamole

Let the guacamole sit at room temperature for an hour to let the flavors meld.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or alongside your favorite Tex-Mex.

Awesome Guacamole

I must say this was one of the best guacamole recipes I have tasted.
