Gourmet Guacamole

Gourmet Guacamole
Recipe type: Lunches & Sides
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 2 or 3 Ripe Avocados (semi-soft to finger pressure)
  • 1 Tomato (seeded and diced)
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • 1 TBL diced Jalapeno pepper
  • Dash of Tabasco pepper sauce
  • Juice of a fresh lime
  • 1 TBL red wine vinegar
  • 1 TBL Mayonnaise
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Cut to the pit around the circumference of each avocado and separate into hemispheres.
  2. With care, chop gently into the pit with chef's knife. The embedded knife will act as a lever to twist and pop out the pit.
  3. Scoop the contents of each avocado half with a spoon to remove all of the flesh from the skin, into a mixing bowl.
  4. Mash avocado with a fork. Guacamole dip is best hand whipped to leave it slightly chunky.
  5. Add remainder of ingredients and mix.
  6. Great dip served with tortilla chips or as a side dish to any mexican or southwestern dish.
