She's Back, She's BACK!!!! Who missed 'Mom Mondays'?!?!? I have been trying to talk my mom in to coming back for the past few weeks, and today I demanded it! :) She is making her famous guacamole for my craft night tomorrow, and I thought it would be fun to share the recipe! Seriously people beg her to make it for every party, and I swear people who don't even like guacamole, love hers!
Its actually super easy, and I have even learned how to make it to perfection....although its never quite the same as 'Mama Sales Guacamole'!
Start with 6 fresh avocados (firm but not hard)
4 plum tomatoes seeded prior to chopping (I like plum as they are meaty and are full of flavor
1 small red onion -- chopped fine
2-3 fresh jalapenos--chopped fine (jar type can be used but I like fresh whenever possible)
the juice of one lime (roll on counter prior to cutting in half to get the most juice)
1 large bunch of fresh cilantro--chopped (ONLY FRESH)
salt and pepper generously to taste
3-4 dashes of hot sauce
Cut avocados in half and remove pit.
cut a grid patten in avocado halves and scoop out with spoon--leave chunky
squeeze lime juice over entire bowl of avocado (for flavor but to also prevent browning
add remaining ingredients--mix & enjoy!!
Serve with hearty chips to hold up this chunky hearty dip!
Try a variation with roasted corn added.....soooo good!
This pic is actually from Tony's Mexican Fiesta blog post, it's so good he even uses it!!!
TIP--cover with plastic wrap and push plastic to touch all guacamole and leave no air.....air is what causes it to brown by the following day!
Ps. How cute is it served in the left over avocado shell! Love it!
