La Parilla Taqueria Guacamole

This is the version of guacamole you often see in little taquerias in Mexico. This is great to make when you can't find avocados at a decent price. Serve over tacos, flautas or just eat with tostada chips.

Fabulous topping for Chicken Tamale Casserole . I agree with another reviewer about starting with less water and adding if you need to. 1/4 cup water made a really smooth guacamole and 1/3 cup made for a sauce (like in Lavender Lynn's photo). I don't think I could go back to regular guacamole after this! Thanks SimplyME for posting. Roxygirl

We made this twice because one of us couldn't believe it could be good with that much water -- and it's honestly better with much less, but the idea of the recipe was to extend the avocado, and you have to trust it; it works. The result is a soft, creamy guacamole that goes best as a sauce or topping, but the flavor is all there: in ours, the jalapeno's pepper flavor came through stronger than its heat. Made for PAC Fall '08.
