KJ’s Should Be Famous Guacamole

I’m not sure why I stopped making this. When I mentioned that to my beloved, he said: “Maybe because I don’t eat guacamole?”

Given that that means twice as much for me, I really don’t know why I stopped.

I whipped this out over the holidays and it literally flew off the table. So for posterity’s sake, lest I forget again:

KJ’s Should Be Famous Guacamole

4 ripe avocados
2 small vine ripened tomatoes, diced
1/2 a bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
the juice of 1 lime
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, to taste
dash of cayenne
sea salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together and serve.

To make the mixing easier, I tend to mash the avocados using a potato masher before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Serve with blue corn tortilla chips (or hemp tortilla chips from the same company if you can find them).

Though spoons, fingers, and celery sticks seem to work just as well!

    Luckily (or unluckily) Matt loves guacamole, so I make it just about any Saturday that we’re home (and can find good avocadoes). My recipe is just about the same as yours–i think I got it from Moosewood Restaurant cookbook and self-modified it. I always make it if we’re going to visit friends, and even people who say they don’t like guac because they hate cilantro enjoy this guac. We were in San Antonio last weekend and had it made tableside @ Boudros on the Riverwalk. Very expensive, but absolutely delicious–but what was really worth the price was watching the waiter cut the avocado–i’ve never tried removing the pit by hitting it with a knife and then scooping out the avocado with a spoon. Won’t be home again until next weekend (Houston for the Olympic Marathon Trials this weekend), so I’ll try it then. Hope you remember to make guac for yourself!

      I love having guac made at the table! And I recently attended a quac class and the chef also pulled the seed out with the knife. I was duly impressed as well, and was surprised at how well it works!
