DIRECTIONS

  • Mix water and spices together in a medium bowl and let stand.
  • Halve avocados; remove pits. With a spoon, slide the skins off.
  • Cut in thirds (carefully inspect and cut out brown or black spots) and add to the bowl.
  • Mince onion and tomato and add to bowl, along with lemon juice, cilantro and salt.
  • Mash with a hand potato masher, then stir to blend the spices. Some people use a blender, but then the guacamole will be pureed with no texture.
  • Taste and adjust the heat level by adding cayenne red pepper as desired.
  • Guacamole needs a fair amount of salt, but before you add more, taste some on the chips you will be serving, as some chips are saltier than others.
  • Cover the guacamole tightly and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with lots of tortilla chips. Whole grain crackers work great for this dip too.
