recipe of the week - the best guacamole ever

Even though one of Bear Gryll's three favorite foods is the avocado I was not having it - until just recently when my younger sister, Kellye, whipped up this amazingly fresh guac in under 10 minutes. I must say I am truly converted. It's super easy (for the culinary impaired like myself) and makes enough for a crowd. Thanks Kel, for opening a whole new world for me and my new found love of the avocado. Enjoy!

Kellye’s Famous Guacamole

4 large avocados
8 dashes hot pepper sauce (or jalapeƱo juice)
1/2 cup small diced red onion
1 large garlic clove - minced
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 medium tomato - seeded then diced, don’t forget
the seeded part.
2 tbsp Lemon juice (to taste)
2 tbsp Lime juice (to taste)

Cut avocados in half, add lemon juice (oh, and lime juice, too), hot pepper sauce, onion, garlic, salt & pepper. Toss well using sharp knife till avocados are diced! Then, add tomatoes! salt to taste! MAGNIFICO!

This does sound extremely easy. I'd try to make it myself...

Speaking of Bear Grylls and his love of avocados, the episode where he is lost on a lava field and finds an avocado tree was on yesterday. Perfect coincidence.
