This guacamole recipe has been a HUGE HIT at family gatherings and parties. It takes traditional guacamole and kicks it up a few notches. To me, the secret ingredient is the cumin. If the picture above isn't enough to convince you, visit us sometime when we make it this summer and I'm sure you'll be convinced!
3 haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
In a large bowl, place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice. Toss to coat. Drain and reserve the lime juice. After all of the avocados have been coated, using a potato masher, add salt, cumin and cayenne and mash. Then, fold in the onions, tomatoes, cilantro and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour then serve.
