Spicy Seasoned Loaded Guacamole

Super Bowl Sunday recipe #2: Guacamole.  Now you wouldn’t think something as innocent as guacamole could cause such turmoil.  I like my mashed avocadoes mixed with stuff, filled with spicy red onions and Serrano peppers, tomatoes for fresh sweetness, and seasonings like cumin and garlic powder for earthy depth.  Jenn, on the other hand, is a minimalist with guacamole.  She likes hers with avocado, salt, pepper, and lime juice.  That’s it.  We’ve learned to keep the peace and our taste buds happy by making both kinds.  Since hers is pretty self-explanatory, here is the recipe for mine, the good stuff…

2 avocados, fairly soft, peeled and pit removed 
1 tablespoon lime juice
¼ teaspoon white wine vinegar
½ red onion, minced
1 Serrano pepper, minced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 roma tomato, pulp removed, then diced
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

In a medium bowl, mash avocado and mix with lime juice and vinegar. Stir in the salt, pepper, cumin, and garlic powder.  Mix in red onion, Serrano pepper, cilantro, and chopped tomato.

  2. This guacamole looks tasty, very nice recipe. Following your blog and thanks for stopping by mine. Have a wonderful day.

  3. My husband does like guacamole at all which means I can make it any old chunky way I want! It is indeed the perfect game day food. Can't say as though I care about the game all that much, but the food, for sure!

  4. Normally I would agree with Jen- avocado, salt, pepper and lime is all I need. However...when it comes to the Super Bowl this recipe is perfect! Lots of spice and extra flavor. Love it :)

  5. Seth, hope you had fun at the fiesta on Carole's Chatter. Ole!
