Today’s recipe started out as Shazzie’s Guacamole (p. 274) but spiraled into our own creation. I’m sure we aren’t doing anything new and spectacular with this recipe but it’s ours all the same. Or shall I say it belongs to Avery. She kind of took over the kitchen when avocados entered the picture. She should be called Baby Avocado, she eats them with a passion. Just takes a spoon and scoops the sweet flesh from its shell. She was very insistent when it came to preparing this recipe.

4 Hass Avocados, halved, pitted
2 tomatoes, seeded, chopped
1 red chile pepper, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped*
2 garlic cloves, minced
Juice of two limes
1 ½ teaspoon sea salt, or more to taste

Scoop the flesh from the avocado halves into a large bowl, add the tomatoes, pepper, garlic, lime juice and sea salt. Smash all the ingredients together with a potato masher until you get a smooth, yet slightly chunky consistency.

*If a guacamole with more heat is what you seek, add the chile’s seeds to the mix.

Note: If the mood strikes you, add a handful of cilantro leaves and a tablespoon or two of chopped white onion . We were out, but I know for a fact they are welcome additions.
