Holy Guacamole!

My nine year old made this. This is seriously the best guacamole I have ever had! I went out to lunch with my husband to a fabulous South American/Pacific Rim restaurant with a guacamole that is sublime. I wanted more and my son always wants to cook. We took a basic guacamole recipe and tweaked it. Rick Bayless, watch out!


• 3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
• 1 ½ lime, juiced
• 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
• Freshly ground pepper, to taste
• A good shake of ancho chili powder (or any red chili powder)
• 1 onion, diced
• 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and dice, or 3 Plum or Campari tomatoes
• 2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
• 1 clove garlic, minced


Scoop the avocados (discard pit and skin) and place the meats in a large bowl. Squeeze the lime, set aside. Dice the onions and tomatoes, set aside. Using a mortar and pestle or a potato masher mash the avocado, add the lime juice, tomatoes, garlic, onion and cilantro and mix well. Add spices, mix well. Let sit for at least 20 minutes before serving.

This is one of the reasons why we have an avacado tree and a lime tree in our yard : )
We planted them 6 yrs ago and it has paid of in apades!
