Guacamole

Best recipe ever:
  1. 3 ripe avocados
  2. 1 large red onion
  3. 2 ripe tomatoes
  4. 1 jalepeno pepper - no seeds and chopped almost to death
  5. cilantro
  6. salt to taste
  7. secret ingredient: Rose's Lime Juice
The key is to mix it all with your hands - it's the personal touch that makes it good. You might ask how Rose's Lime Juice came to be the secret ingredient - good story. The Boy and I were making Guacamole to go with our margaritas one summer afternoon after studying for the bar when we realized we were out of pure lime juice. No way were we going back to the store and no way were we not having our Guacamole. But it just wasn't right without the lime. So we added Rose's figuring, why not? It was the closest to lime juice we had on hand. And let me just say that the touch of sweetness is just what the chef ordered.

Enjoy!

Definately squish it. This is a hands-on recipe. Just beware the jalepeno and what you do with your hands after dicing it :)
