I always thought I hated avocados, just like I think I hate raw tomatoes. However, on a recent trip to Whole Foods I discovered I love guacamole; therefore, my hatred of avocados is fabricated!
Whole Foods is 40 minutes away from my house, so I decided to make my own. Here is what I came up with… personally, I feel the results are quite scrumptious!
Oh, and if you have no idea what Sriracha is, click here. I love this stuff, and it can be found in the Asian section of your grocery store!
4 ripe avocados, pitted and mashed
1 Roma tomato, diced
1/2 cup diced red onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 diced jalapeno
the juice of one lime
salt and black pepper to taste
pinch of Cayenne pepper
a couple dashes of Sriracha
*You can also add fresh cilantro…I had none on hand.
1. In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, onion, tomatoes, jalapeno and garlic.
2. Stir in cayenne pepper and Sriracha.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- For best flavor, refrigerate at least two hours.
