Paula Deen/George Iv's Favorite Guacamole

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

There's no such thing as too many guacamole recipes...I love to try new ones. I like this recipe because the jalapenos bite back, and the grated lime zest and lime juice give it great flavor. I used red onion instead of yellow, and I added salsa instead of tomato because that's what I had. I can't say I finely chopped anything besides the mashed avocados, but I like the chunks and I'm impatient and want to eat it--not chop it. I also added a little pepper. Recipe from Paula Deen The Deen Family Cookbook. DELICIOUS! Serving size is estimated.

Really good one, with added zing from lime zest!
