Guacamole

Cayenne pepper gives this guacamole a little kick.

What you’ll need:

3 ripe avocadoes
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp salt
½ c diced onion
3 Tbl chopped cilantro
2 Roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 pinch cayenne pepper

In a medium bowl, mash together the avocado meat, lime juice and salt until desired consistency. Mix in remaining ingredients, stirring well after each addition and adding the cayenne pepper last. Refrigerate to chill for at least one hour before serving. Makes 4 servings.

How to…

Easily get the meat out of an avocado…

Always use ripe avocados! Roll them in between your hand and the counter using firm pressure. Slice long ways around the avocado pushing the knife until it touches the pit all the way around. Twist halves of avocado opposite directions and separate them. Remove the pit. Scoop meat out with a spoon making sure to ‘clean’ the inside of the skins.

Cost:
avocado – $1.99/lb
limes – $1.99/4
onion – $1.12
tomato – $1.00
Total – $4.60
