Holy guacamole

Posted By on Tue, Jul 27, 2010 at 11:36 AM

What's green and creamy, and delicious? (Nope, it's not boogers. Gag, gag. Who does that?!)

Guacamole is incredibly easy to make. The worst part is paying an arm and a leg for avocados at Harris Teeter.

A tip: To get the pit out of the avocado, smack the blade of a heavy knife into the pit, twist, and remove. To get the pit off the knife, simple pinch the knife blade right above the pit and it should pop off.

This guac recipe takes about 10 minutes to prepare. Since it doesn't contain any jalapeños, those Hint of Jalapeños Tostitos Scoops tortilla chips complement it well.

Get dipping.

Holy Moley, Easy Guacamole

3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and diced

1 lemon, juiced

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup diced onion

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)

In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash together the avocados, lemon juice, and salt (leaving it as chunky as you like). Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
