This guacamole came to us as a result of my parents moving to Whittier and into a house complete with an Avocado grove. Every once in a while we receive a box of about 50 of these usually expensive fruits. If you are the recipient of this rather unique gift, wait for the Avocados to ripen, and then peel, core, and puree all of them. Once to have a giant batch of this paste, place serving size (about two cups) portions of the avocado puree into a double layer of plastic bags. You can now freeze the bags inside of a large Tupperware. As an additional note, I have served this guacamole to a group of friendly stoners who sang its praises as “the best thing ever!” before they smoked up.
- The flesh from four medium-sized (and very ripe) Avocados
- 3 Peeled Garlic Cloves
- ½ Red Onion
- ¼ Cup Lime Juice
- ½ Cup Cilantro Leaves
- 2 Tbsp Cumin
- 2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Place all the dry ingredients (avocado flesh, garlic, and red onion) in a food processor. Pulse for a short period of time (like for a few seconds). The resulting “paste” should be generally uniform. I prefer larger red onion chunks.
- Add in the lime juice and pulse again. If the mixture is too thick for your preference, add in additional lime juice.
- Add in the spices (cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper) and taste.
