:: made with fresh guacamoles ::

i've been on a big guacamole kick for a couple of months. after having a bowl of delicious table-side guac from papa's and beer the other day, i decided i needed more lime juice in my homemade concoction. its not particularly hard to make, but for those who like reading my food posts (hi, jerry!), here's my current guacamole recipe. with actual measurements!

2 avocados
1 roma tomato, diced
1/2 small-medium white onion, diced
1/2-1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced
1 lime
1 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of kosher salt

halve the avocados, remove the pit, add meat to a bowl. use a fork (not a spoon) to mush it to your liking. (i like mine a little chunky, so i don't do much in this step. remember, you'll be adding more ingredients and therefore stirring more so don't turn it into paste!)

add the tomato, onion, jalapeno (i use 1 whole pepper with seeds & membrane removed to control the heat), garlic and salt. add the juice of half of the lime (i also like to add a little bit of lime zest). mix together. add the juice of the other lime half, if needed.

goes great with stacy's pita chips (naked) - but what doesn't? (great dip companion.)

title explantion: i went to a chain restaurant for lunch one day and the waitress really tried a hard sell on one of the appetizers, telling us that it was "made with fresh guacamoles." as funny as we found her description, we passed on ordering the guacamole made with fresh guacamoles.
