I had never, ever, ever made guacamole until last night, but I had everything I needed to make it so I thought I would give it a try. It turned out great and there were zero leftovers. (By the way, my brother makes the best guacamole I have ever eaten, but I don’t have his recipe. Actually, I don’t think there is a recipe…he just wings it.)

3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced

We had this with Chips and Salsa Chicken.

In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated.

Using a potato masher or fork add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. Then, fold in the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.

Did I change anything? I only had one avocado, so I just reduced the amounts of the other ingredients. I wish my avocado would have been a little bit softer, too. I didn’t have time to let it sit four an hour. I just made it and then we ate it.

What did the family think? The boys wouldn’t touch it, but hubby and I gobbled it up.
