Holy Guacamole!

Here is a quick, easy, and delightfully satisfying recipe for Guacamole. If paired with Ann Arbor Tortilla Factory Chips (preferably the lime ones), people will not be able to keep their hands off it. All my leftovers have mysteriously disappeared in less than 24 hours... (sorry there are no pictures... people really wanted that guacamole yesterday, there was no time!)

  • 4 RIPE Avocados
  • 2 Tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 of a white onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 limes
  • a whole bunch of fresh cilantro
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • a couple dashes of cayenne pepper
  1. Mash the meat of an avocado in a medium sized bowl with a fork.
  2. Add in the diced tomatoes, diced onion, and minced garlic, further mash with a fork.
  3. Roll a lime on a counter top (to loosen up the juices), cut in half and squeeze onto the avocado mixture.
  4. Cut a good amount of the leaves off a bunch of cilantro, give those a rough chop, then toss into the avocado mixture and mass further with a fork.
  5. Grind in a whole bunch (well, not THAT much...but a lot) of fresh ground pepper. Then comes the almighty (and flavor enhancing) ingredient: Kosher Salt! Add in the kosher salt. Finally, a few dashes of cayenne pepper.
  6. Grab a chip and take a nice big scoop of your freshly made guacamole!
