Zada’s Guacamole

Ingredients

8 Hass Avocados
1 small Red Onion
5 stalks of Green Onions
5 cloves of garlic
2-3 Serrano peppers( I prefer the red ones, green will do just fine)
Cup of Cilantro
1 large Tomato
2 medium limes
Salt to taste

Preparation

  1. Chop up all of your onions, cilantro, and tomato. Set aside.
  2. Mince Serrano peppers and garlic. Set aside.
  3. Take your limes and roll them around to get the juices going, then cut in halves.
  4. Cut avocados in half and discard the seed. Scoop out the green goodness in a large bowl. *Squeeze a little lime juice on each avocado after putting them in the bowl to keep from browning*
  5. Mash avocados with a fork until creamy or to the texture of your liking.
  6. Add all ingredients to the bowl and mix well. Add the rest of your lime juice and salt for taste.
  7. Sit back and enjoy the beautiful guacamole you just created. Don’t forget to share!

Joe’s Guacamole

Ingredients

5 ripe Hass avocados
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (heaping) tsp. ground cumin, preferably fresh ground
2-3 Serrano chilies, seeded & finely chopped
2 ripe Roma (or medium slicing tomato), chopped
1 lime, juiced
1/3-1/2 cups cilantro, rough chopped
Salt to taste

Preparation

  1. Combine all ingredients and mash. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Tips:

  • For fuller flavor from Serrano chilies, pan roast them in a dry skillet until skin is blackened and blistered.
  • Add chilies one at a time, tasting in between, to find the right spice level.
