Guac-Amore

The best advice I can give to anyone about to embark on the journey of crafting one of the most perfect party snacks of all time is to watch this video, roll up your sleeves (imaginary or otherwise), and get started.

Party Guacamole

10 Ripe Avocados
½ Green Bell Pepper, Small Diced
2 Chili Peppers, Minced
4 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Bunch Green Onions
2 Tbs. Sweet Chili Sauce
1/3 Cup Lime Juice (This is a minimum guesstimate. I also used bottled lime juice because lazy #donttellthebarefootcontessa)
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
1 Tbs. Cilantro Paste (Optional)

Halve and pit the avocadoes, spooning out the buttery center into a large bowl


Coat the halves with lemon juice and a light sprinkle of salt and pepper
Rinse the bunch of green onions and separate the white part from the bright green stems
Cut up the white part of the onion into a smaller dice, then slice the green tops
To the avocados, add the peppers, garlic, chili sauce, cilantro, the white part of the green onion and about 1/3 of the sliced green part

For chunky guacamole, use a fork and a knife (or two of some kind of utensil) to slice and stir the mixture in the bowl (if this action makes no sense, I apologize and am happy to elaborate if needed)


If you do not like chunky guacamole, please search the internet for a different recipe


Add more lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste

Place in a serving bowl and top with another drizzle of lemon juice, a dash of black pepper, and a sprinkling of the sliced green onions

Consume with favorite dipping mechanism of choice. Blue corn chips are a personal favorite, but to each his own. This same recipe can be made using less of every ingredient, though in my book there is no such thing as too much guacamole.

Storing excess guac in a mason jar and dousing with lemon juice before sealing the top is a great way to maintain that beautiful verdant color. The top might oxidize a tad, but it won’t hurt you!

I purposefully make too much guacamole for parties so that I am forced to figure out what to do with the leftovers.

Oh the horror!

Ways to use leftover guacamole:
1. The usual way, a.k.a with corn chips
2. As a topping for Chili
3. As delicious chunky salad dressing
4. To put a spin on deviled eggs
5. With a spoon (that’s right, give in)
