Guacamoooooooole!

Anyone remember the scene in Austin Powers Goldmember when Austin is talking to the Wonder Years Dude and he keeps getting distracted by that huge, hairy mole on his face?  Powers starts flapping about moley moley, chop it up and make some guacaMOLE!?  Guacamole always makes me think of that clip.

This blog post is a tribute to my Sister's moley moley skills.  And she DIDN'T chop any moles up to make this delish guacaMOLE.  I'm pretty much in love with it.  It reminds me of the scrumptious guac that you get at Chipotle on your Burrito bowl.


You aren't even going to believe how easy this is...

Ingredients:
  • 5 Avocados
  • 2 Jalapenos diced (wash your hands a million times after you chop these up...otherwise you'll have some burney mcburnerson all over your skin afterwards!)
  • 1/2 Red Onion diced
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of Cilantro chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of Lime Juice
  • 1 tablespoon of Salt (to taste)
Directions:

Mix everything together!  Mash it up!  It's so easy.  Pour all your ingredients in one bowl, mash and stir till you have the desired consistency.  I like mine chunky, but you can go crazy and keep mashing if you like yours smooth.  

 

GUAC SECRET!!!  Save one or two of the pits from your avocados and put them back in your dip when it's all finished.  There is some sort of enzyme in the pit that helps keep your guac from turning brown.  You know how when you make guacamole you have to eat it ALL or it turns brown?  It's like magic, if you just put your pit back in the mash after your done with your dip it keeps for a little while longer AND doesn't brown. Crazy huh?  Oh Mother Nature. You're so clever :) 

Guacamole is kind of one of those things you can't really screw up.  You can adjust your ingredients to your liking with more or less of some of the ingredients.  The only thing I wouldn't leave out it the lime juice since that also kinda helps with preventing instant browning.  

So happy guaccing, Ya'll!  YUMMO!!
