Guacamole (Whole Foods’ Best Ever)

guac1I’ve always said that if I ever was stranded on a deserted island with banana trees that I could live forever with that fruit. Well, after preparing this recipe, I’d have to add avocados to the list of things I couldn’t do without

This is the Whole Foods’ “Best Ever” Guacamole recipe…

  • 8-10 medium avocados (ripe)
  • ½ pint of cherry tomatoes (grape or regular variety- sliced into small pieces)
  • 3 oz sour cream
  • ¼ red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 hot pepper (I like Anaheim- finely chopped)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin (or more to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder (to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 limes)
  • Cilantro to taste (or not if you don’t like it)
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients except the tomatoes, mashing first with a fork (or potato masher) and then blend with a firm whisk.  Taste and correct the seasoning and then fold in the tomatoes at the end so they will be intact.  Serve with tortilla chips to lots of opinionated friends.
