Instructions

  1. Cut avocado in large chunks and mash coarsely in large bowl with a fork.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend gently; leaving some small chunks is fine.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning with more pepper sauce, salt and pepper if desired.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve in a molcajete (a bowl made from volcanic rock) for an authentic Mexican flair.

Beverage Pairings:
Try with frosty margaritas for a festive get-together.

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.

*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.
