Award Winning Guacamole

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Slatts

This recipe comes from The Best of Mexico cookbook. It won first place at my work site last year during our annual Cinco Day Mayo salsa and guacamole competition. Wear gloves when you chop the Serrano chilies. There is not a lot of lime juice in this recipe so prepare it as close to serving time as possible to avoid browning.

Wow! This is so yummy. I needed some guacamole for recipe #375957. DH and I normally don't eat it cuz we find it has no flavor...but this is packed full of it. We loved the serrano and cilantro in this recipe cuz it added a nice touch of heat and the flavor we enjoy. Thanks for posting this. It will be our chosen guacamole dish in the future. :)
