Guacamole … My Way

 This is guacamole, my way.  It may offend purists, who insist that guacamole is best when it is avocado and lime juice only, but I have made it this way for years and so far I have had no complaints.  Even with the mayo.  Trust me, it’s so good.

I served this dip for parties and it is eaten with greedy abandon.  It is also lovely on top of fajitas or spread inside a whole grain wrap sandwich.  The options are only limited by your imagination.

I like to mash most of the avocado until it is creamy and smooth, then dice what remains so you have chunks of whole buttery avocado goodness.   It is better to let it sit for a few hours, spritzed with lime juice and covered with plastic wrap, but you can eat it right away.

Guacamole   Serves 6-8

Two ripe avocados
2 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon onion, grated
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced 
1 tablespoon cilantro, minced fine
2 tablespoons Rotel tomatoes, drained
Fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper

In a bowl combine the mayonnaise, cumin, coriander, onion, cilantro, and garlic. 

Add the flesh of one and a half avocados to the mixture in the bowl and mash well.  Take the flesh of the remaining half avocado and dice into 1/4 inch cubes and gently fold into the mixture along with the rotel.

    My mother puts mayo in her guac, so you are most certainly not alone in adding it. I remember that my family would devour massive quantities of it.

    Although, myself, I am strictly a lime and salt guac maker I still appreciate my mom’s.

    um, I’m pretty sure adding mayo to guac is an absolute sin

    The name of the site is Evil Shenanigans. Mayo in guac is a pretty evil shenanigan I suppose, considering it is now a sin. :)
