I love guacamole. For me, it's one of those things like pizza (and sex) that when it's good, it's great, but even when it's bad, it's still pretty good. I've tried a few guacamole recipes, but never found one I really liked, so I just made this one up. It's really not very traditional...it has Worcestershire sauce and balsamic vinegar in it, of all things! But it's the version Shane and I seem to like best.
Feel free to play around with it and make it your own.
5 ripe avocados
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2 slices jalapeno pepper, chopped (or to taste)
1 small Roma tomato, diced (optional)
Remove avocado pulp from shells; mash with a fork. Add remaining ingredients. Stir lightly for a chunky guacamole, or more thoroughly for a smoother dip.
Makes about 2-1/2 cups.
