A lot of the things I cook/bake I take to work and share with my folks there. Occasionally, they make something and bring ME some and leave it on my desk. (I try not to arrive too early) Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, I found a container of homemade Guacamole on my desk. I refrigerated it during the day and then took it home. Later that night while watching the Mariner's (ugh!) on TV, I popped out the guac and some chips and along with my cold beer, snacked. God it was good guacamole.
So I then proceeded to try and make my own. I made three different versions based upon a variety of ingredients, and threw 2 out of the 3 away, because they weren't that good. I always thought Guacamole was easy!
Tried a 4th combination of ingredients, and here it is. This is some seriously good stuff. And might rival that left on my desk. Might I say, 'cause that was good stuff Aimee!
Give it a try. Make sure the avocado's are Haas (creamier) and ripe (soft).
Ingredients and Method:
2 ripe Haas avocados (Soft when gently squeezed)
1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice or lime juice, depends on your preference
a pinch or two of cayenne pepper
1/2 cup finely diced tomatoes
