Recipe Provided By the California Avocado Commission
Proudly flaunting its regional pride, this spicy guacamole features red peppers, cayenne, garlic and thyme.
finely diced red bell pepper
ripe, Fresh California Avocados
fresh lemon juice
small cherry tomatoes (cut in halves or quarters, if large)
thinly sliced green onion
garlic cloves, finely chopped
chopped, fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 of that amount of dried thyme
freshly ground black pepper
- Set aside a small amount of the diced red peppers for garnish.
- Coarsely mash (DO NOT PUREE) avocados; stir in lemon juice.
- Fold in remaining ingredients.
- Top with reserved tomatoes and serve.
Place in a bowl in the center of a serving plate and surround with celery stalks and cooked shrimp for dipping.
For a taste of traditional New Orleans, serve with Ramos Gin Fizz cocktails.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap directly against the surface of the guacamole.
As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.
