Mouth watering GUACAMOLE!

Guacamole has quickly become one of my family’s favorite appetizers. They insist mine is the best they’ve had. My secret weapon- A mortar and pestle.

You will need:

3-4 avocados

1-2 cloves garlic, minced

2-3 scallions, diced (any type of onion will work)

1 jalapeno or cayenne pepper, minced.

¼ cup fresh Cilantro, minced.

1 medium tomato, cored, chopped

Lime Juice- start with juice from half of the lime. Add to taste from that point.

Black Pepper to taste

Sea Salt to taste

Peel and mash avocados.

Add garlic, jalapeño, onion, cilantro in a mortar. Season with salt and mash with a pestle or until a coarse paste forms.

Mix paste with mashed avocado. Add lime juice and fold in tomatoes.  Season to taste with salt, pepper & additional lime juice. Serve with tortilla chips or vegetables.
