best guacamole recipe - hands down!

Our friends hosted a Mexican diner last Saturday and this is what my very sweet husband made for us.  (I was too busy dealing with  AAA because I locked my blasted keys in my car on the other side of town yet again and thought I had a spare and didn't so this chica was stressed and running around frantic Saturday.  Thank goodness margaritas made it all better!) 

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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 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.

It is soooo good!

Happy Weekend!!
