Recipe 47: GREAT GUACAMOLE (appetizer)

Holy Guacamole, do I love avacados! one of my favorite ways to eat Avocados is in Guacamole. Hubby doesnt like it, which is fine...more for me!

SOURCE: This recipe comes from the Relief Society cookbook.  This guaqc is great. The secret, believe it or not, is Mayo.


3 avocados
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cp finely chopped green pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 small roma tomato, seeded and chopped.
1 TBSP Lime Juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 to 1 TBSP  Mayonnaise. (to taste)
Salt and Pepper to taste.

mash avocados and stir in salt, pepper, garlic, lime juice and mayo.
add chopped pepper, onion and cilantro.
serve immediately.
when storing leftovers place saran wrap DIRECTLY ON THE GUAC.   dont just cover the bowl, actually gt that wrap down directly onto your dip to keep it from oxidizing and turning brown.

for a spicier guac, add chopped jalapenos or crushed red pepper flakes.
