It’s just been in the last 3-4 years that I have acquired a taste for avocados. At most all Mexican restaurants and at many social gatherings, people serve guacamole. A great deal of the time it has no taste or people just make it too spicy. One day I was asked to make some for a party. I started playing with recipes and this is what I finally decided was the best. My son who is very particular about his food loved it; so that sealed it . This is the recipe that I’ll be using. One note, you can mash the avocados as much or as little as you like. I tend to leave small chucks of avocado in it but some people like it creamy. It will not affect the taste. It is a texture thing.
4 medium ripe avocados
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
8 dashes Franks Hot Sauce
1/2 cup Shallot
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium tomato, seeded and small-diced
1 bag tortilla chips
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl.
Immediately add the lime juice, Franks hot sauce, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and toss well.
Using a potato masher, mash through the avocados in the bowl until they are blended
Add the tomato. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper. Serve with chips.
