Well there's a Mexican restaurant in town that actually makes guacamole at your table! Yes, right before your eyes! They make it with a mortar and pestle and no fillers are used! It is so yummy! My hubby always watches, very closely, how they make it. But just like spinach and artichoke dip, we've found a way to enjoy this at home. Here's how!
On the Table Guacamole!
1 small sweet onion diced
1-2 cloves garlic minced
1-2 hot peppers minced (I use serranos but jalapenos or poblanos would also work)
1-3 Tbsp of chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground chipotle pepper
1 tsp salt
2 tomatoes seeded and diced
2 avocados (peeled with pits removed)
In a bowl or mortar add your diced onion, minced garlic, minced hot peppers, chopped cilantro, lime juice, cumin, chipotle pepper, and salt.
Using either a pestle or a potato masher (if you don't have a mortar and pestle), smash up these ingredients. You want to get the flavors to blend.
Next add your avocados and tomatoes. With a wooden spoon blend all the ingredients together. Your avocados will be lumpy....this is not a "smooth" dip.
Enjoy this amazing dip with tortilla chips and with Beer Flats! Beer Flats are an ah-mazing cracker that is not as greasy as a tortilla chip and not salty....they are hearty and don't break when you scoop up guacamole...they are just sssooo good!
