I had been waiting for avocados to go on sale for a few months. I was not about to buy each avocado for $2 apiece. So, last week when I saw them at 88 cents apiece, I knew my prayers had been answered. Naturally, I grabbed a bunch. And what do you do when you have an excess of avocados? Make guacamole, of course.
This recipe is super simple. And like most of my other recipes, I opted out of using tomatoes. Sorry for all you tomato lovers out there, like my husband. I just can’t make myself jump on to the tomato bandwagon. But, just like all my other recipes, feel free to tweak it to your liking. I still found this recipe equally, if not more, satisfying without tomatoes. The omission of tomatoes prevented the final product from being excessively watery which is a no-no in my guacamole book. It’s filled with onions and pickled jalapenos which are my go-to ingredients for a lot of dishes. The hint of red pepper flakes is the “icing on the guacamole” that helps give it that extra kick of spice.
Don’t forget the lime to prevent browning! It really works and helps with the zesty flavor. For all you guacamole-loving, tomato-hating people out there, this one’s for you. Let me know how you like it in the comments below!
