I absolutely love guacamole. I mean what’s not to like – avocado, garlic, tomatoes. Mmm… mmm… mmm… Because I like things spicy, I’ve kicked it up a notch. This recipe is easy peas-y and oh-so-tasty. Bon appétit!

Yields 1 batch

3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon cayenne
½ 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 the 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 and then serve.
