Yesterday, two teams met in a ferocious battle. Yes, technically the Super Bowl was on, but the two teams I'm referring to are Team Spicy and Team Please-don't-burn-my-mouth-off.
Mr. S is captain of Team Spicy. He adds chilies to everything, including chocolate cake. I am not on his team.
This is man's guacamole. It will be spicy, manly, and delicious.
However, I was allowed to scoop out the avocados!
I wasn't allowed to cut the avocados - even after this (below) was needed. Not by me. By a very stubborn man, who wanted to make the guacamole by himself. With a large knife.
Then came the jalapenos. Two of them. Seeds and all!
You notice how far back I am. The peppers were vicious! They were trying to attack me already!
Mr. S has a secret when it comes to tomatoes - don't put the seeds & their goo in. Scoop them out with your finger and get rid of them!
Ewww, tomato innards. Gross.
The good stuff gets chopped and put in, along with red onion and cilantro. Yum!
Then there is mixing, and some spices.
These spices to be exact -
The last thing is lime juice. To taste. It's all very scientific, you know.
Then - the real secret - you cover it in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night. To let the flavors mingle.
They must do an awful lot of mingling - cause dang, this stuff is good! (and not too spicy, might I add!)
Serves - a party
8 ripe avocados
1/2 large red onion, chopped
2 roma tomatoes, de-seeded and chopped
1/4 - 1/2 c. cilantro (to your taste) chopped
1-2 jalapenos (to your taste) chopped
1/4 c lime juice or 4 mini limes, juiced (to your taste)
Cumin, Salt, Pepper (to your taste)
Guacamole is a very personal thing. Just make it a bunch of times till you get it the way you like it.
