JJ’s Guacamole

24 Sep

A couple weeks ago, Chrissy and I headed to JJ’s rents’ house in nj.  We made some killer fish tacos and JJ spearheaded the guacamole.  He did it almost all by himself.  And he did good (said in jewish grandma voice).  It was tasty.

adapted from Ina and others
4 ripe avocados
1 lemon
1 lime
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
hot sauce (or we added some chipotle adobo sauce)
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
1 garlic clove, minced (jj asked me to include that while he was doing this, I yelled “I SAID MINCED NOT CHOPPED!!”)
1 teaspoon kosher salt (plus more to taste)
1 tomato, seeded and small diced (remove juicy seed stuff, then chop firm remaining part)
1 teaspoon ground pepper

Cut avocados in the half.  Make grid of slice marks on each half, turn inside out so chopped avocado falls into bowl.  Add juice from lemon, garlic, salt, cilantro, onion, and pepper.  Mix (don’t mix until smooth– just to combine)  Add lime juice, additional salt and hot sauce to taste.  Can add red pepper flakes too.

    Haha. And this was before the garlic mincing competition! Good job JJ – looks delish.

    This is the single most delicious dish ever prepared by anyone, ever, in the history of cooking. I enjoyed every savory bite.
