This recipe is one that my aunt gave me, and I have made some modifications. If you don't have peppers, I recomend Dave's Insanity Sauce (added 1 teeny drop at a time to taste).
- 6 Hass avocadoes
- 1 lime
- 1⁄4 cup diced onion
- 1⁄4 cup diced plum tomato
- 1⁄4 cup diced bell pepper
- 1 tablespoon hot peppers or 1 tablespoon hot sauce, of your choice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, to taste
- 1⁄4 cup beer (Corona if possible) (optional)
- 4 diced garlic cloves
- When selecting Haas Avocados, it is important to make sure that they are ripe if you want to use them right away.
- Ripe Characteristics: *Skindarkens as it ripens. *Fruityields to gentle pressure when ripe."http://www.avocado.org/avocado-facts/hass-avocados.php".
- Rinse off produce.
- Take avocados and take a sharp knife and slice to the pit lengthwise, then carefully slide knife around keeping the blade against the pit cutting the avocado in half.
- pull the pieces apart.
- Using the blade of the knife wack the pit embedding the knife into it and turn, this should free the pit.
- Using a spoon scrape the flesh of the fruit from the skin, need the stem of the avocado make sure to remove any unwanted bits.
- Place fruit into mixing bowl and repeat for the rest of the avocados.
- Using a masher, or spoon, mash the avocados until they are a homogeneous paste.
- Dice the produce to the desired thickness that you like.
- You can keep the seeds in if you like.
- Dice the garlic as fine as you wish.
- Add this mixture, except hot peppers to the bowl.
- Take the lime and put it into a microwave for about 15-30 seconds.
- This will bring more juices out of the lime.
- Then cut it in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl.
- Add the beer, if you desire.
- Thouroughly mix the ingredients.
- Slowly add hot pepper/sauce and seeds, testing for hotness.
- When it is ready, salt to taste, remember that the tortilla chips will also be somewhat salted.
- It is best to test the guacamole with a chip.
This is my favorite guacamole recipe. It is great with salty chips.
This sounds really good. The beer would add a really neat twang to the taste. I haven't even tried it and I can taste it! I am going to make this one for sure!
