Holy Guacamole and some Late July Organic Chips

So many different places serve this green goop of goodness and at one time I couldn't stand the taste if it but after making this stuff so many times for the wife I acquired a love for the avocado. Now that avocados are in season it's gonna be a great week cause we got a bunch of them to use up.
Now some people will just mash down the avocado and call it guacamole and these people are way out in left field. I am not a chef but I know that is a joke and people serving it like that should be shut down by the guacamole police ( if there are any out there). So here is what you need 


3 ripe avocados

1 clove minced garlic 

1 tbsp black pepper

1/2 -1 tsp salt  go easy on the salt to start

1 medium tomato diced 

1/2 green pepper diced

1/2 onion diced

2 green onions diced

1 tbsp pickled  jalapeƱos diced ( or fresh if you gott-em)

Juice from half a lemon ( bout 2 tbsp)

2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro 

Start by splitting the avocados and de-pitting them keeping the pits aside for later. In a large bowl add the avocados, garlic, black pepper, and the salt and mix together some people use a food processor but I don't I like to use a spoon and mash them up by hand. Let that rest while you chop all you other veggies after you toss in each ingredient mix it a little more till you got all in there it's ready to eat now but will be better in a few hours. When you go to store it place the guacamole in an air tight container along with the pits it helps keep the guacamole fresher. If you are gonna use a dried cilantro then mix it in when you put in the other spices to give it time to reconstitute. And that is that this stuff is great on any you want to put it on or just tear it up with chips.

Enjoy and have fun.
