If you don’t look like you have anything planned for the big game and your ‘too-busy-watching-meatheads-run-around-on-your-TV’ roommates need snacks you can always make this delicious guacamole without thanks or recognition.
What you’ll need as far as ingredients.
-3 Large Avocados
-4 Serrano Peppers (chopped)
-1 Tomato (Diced)
-2 Garlic Cloves (Crushed)
-1/4 C. Red Onions (Chopped)
-1 t. Paprika
-1 t. Salt
-1 t. Pepper (Black, Ground)
-2 T. Butter or Vegetable Oil
What you’ll need as far as tools.
-Garlic Press or something to crush garlic. Perhaps a Hammer
-Large Non-Serated Knife (for all of the cutting, dicing, and chopping you should be doing)
As long as you’ve chopped, crushed, and diced the various ingredients labeled there are really only two things you need to do. First, you’ll need to sauté the Onions, Garlic, in a pan with the prescribed amount of Butter.
To sauté you’ll cook the Onions and Garlic over a higher heat so as to brown them while preserving their texture and flavor. Make sure that you are moving the Onions and Garlic in the pan so as to evenly cook on all sides and to make sure that none of it burns to the pan. At the higher temperature that sautéing requires it is a much shorter amount of time it takes while being distracted to burn the components.
After that add and mix all the ingredients into the bowl other than the Avocados and Lime Juice. After that, you’re going to have to clean the Avocados. SAVE ONE OF THE PITS.
If you need guidance as far as that is concerned, check the previous post. Next, put the flesh of the Avocado in the bowl and begin using the Fork to mash and stir the Avocado with the ingredients already located in the bowl.
After you’ve stirred and mashed your Avocados to a consistency good for you add the Lime Juice to taste (in an amount that tastes good to you). So add the Lime Juice little by little until you feel comfortable with the taste (I put in about one tablespoon, but I also like the taste of lime). Also take into account that you are also adding the Lime Juice to help keep the guacamole from oxidizing and turning brown. Lastly, you are going to take the pit you saved when you were cleaning your Avocado, and put it into your guacamole. This does not actually help keep your guacamole fresh. That is a myth. But, I put it in anyway for presentation and comfort. It looks correct to me after having it in there for so many years and if it’s not in there the first question I get asked by the idiots who demand I make food for them is, “Where’s the pit?”. Instead of explaining I just put it in. It doesn’t hurt anything. In the end your guacamole should look like this…
Though you are using four Serrano Peppers, it is not actually that spicy. Serrano’s tend to be a more flavorful type of pepper. Yet the general rules for peppers apply. The smaller the pepper the spicier, the seeds are the spicy part: the more included the spicier it is, and DO NOT RUB YOUR EYES AFTER HANDLING, WASH YOUR HANDS, but do tell the friend who is high as you make this post that pepper oils will make the redness in his eyes go away before he has to go to work today.
