Guac Off Guacamole

We (meaning, in this case, my husband) finally got a chance to make guacamole from one of the recipes in the great 2009 book, Guac Off!. We went with “El Primero,” the 2000 winner of the guac-making competition. We figured if it lived up to our expectations, we could serve it at a Super Bowl party. Sure enough, this recipe has just the right amount of crunch and texture, thanks to the accompanying “Simple Salsa” recipe. Here are the ingredients for the salsa:

2 chopped Roma tomatoes
2 green onions (we actually used a little more than that)
2 cloves of garlic, minced (ditto)
1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped

Just mix it all together. A half cup of the salsa will be added to the guacamole, whose ingredients are:

2 large avocados, diced
Juice of 2 limes, or a quarter cup
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp. onion, chopped
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine the avocado and lime juice first; keep it chunky. Then stir in the rest of the ingredients before adding the salsa. Of course, you can just make or the other. We used our batch as a sandwich spread. This recipe is definitely a winner in our household!
