Another great recipe from Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa that I came across last year. This is my favorite guacamole recipe to make, it is chalk full of flavor and so hard to resist.


4 ripe Haas avacados

1 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

8 dashes tobasco sauce

1/2 cup diced red onion

1 garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 medium tomato, seeded, and small diced

Cut the avacados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl. Immediately add the lemon juice, Tobaasco, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avacados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomaotes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
