I could eat guacamole like a champ. Once you begin making your own from scratch, you will never eat store-bought guacamole again. Since I love all things spicy, here is my rendition on the traditional recipe. It’s a sure hit for all of you hot sauce and pepper lovers out there, as well!
– 3 ripened avocados
– 1 tomato
– 1 mammoth jalapeño
– 1 habañero
– handful fresh cilantro
– juice of 1 lime
– kosher salt
– freshly ground black pepper
– smoked paprika
– ground chipotle powder
First, wash and pat dry all of your fresh veggies.
Slice open the avocados, remove their seeds, and spoon out their fillings into a mixing bowl or large molcajete.
Mash the avocado using the molcajate, spoon, or fork. Leave a few clumps in there so that your guacamole remains a little chunky.
Then, dice up your jalapeño and habañero. Leave the seeds in if you want the guacamole to be fiery hot.
Mince the fresh cilantro as best as you can. I’m never really good at this.
Lastly, dice up that tomato.
Add the lime juice, a palm-sized amount of freshly crushed oregano, and large dashes of smoked paprika, cumin, and chipotle chile powder. Sprinkle on kosher salt and ground pepper to taste. Mix all of the ingredients together so that they have a smooth consistency.
Serve with a side of tortilla chips, and enjoy!
The habañero, jalapeño and assorted spices create the perfect amount of heat. The avocado, cilantro, and lime juice are such a refreshing combination, as well. This guacamole also tastes great on tacos, burritos, panini sandwiches, my taco pie recipe
, and salads.
Hope you’ll like this recipe as much as we do!
