I love guacamole, but I've never made it completely from scratch before so I thought I'd give it a try.  I decided to try Alton Brown's guacamole recipe because it got such rave reviews.


3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced


In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash.

Then, fold in the onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.

What's the verdict?  It was SO delicious.  I am a wimp when it comes to spicy foods so I only used 1/4 of a jalapeno, and 1/4 tsp of cayenne.  It wasn't spicy at all and it was really chip licking good.  This recipe is definitely a keeper and one that I know I will make again and again.
