Turned out fucking brilliant!

Ingredients:

2 ripe avocados
1/2 can of Rotell (It's basically a mix of diced tomatoes and green chilies)
Lime juice (I dunno, I just squirted a lot in there)
Frank's Red Hot Sauce (Ditto)
Garlic salt - Light sprinkling, enough to taste
Cracked black pepper - As much as you want. Just make sure it's the stuff you crack yourself, or it's not as awesome.

Anybody got any other recommendations on what to throw in next time?

Anyway, we're getting a foot of snow out here and I ain't got shit else to do today. I'm gettin' drunk at 3 in the afternoon!

WOOOOOOOO!

Add a little olive oil. It is a nice trick.

And keep the air off of it or it will brown quickly.

Sounds tasty.

But having guacamole while it's snowing out seems weird. Maybe that's just my California bias.

Olive oil works? I had thought about adding some, but wasn't sure if I'd fuck it up or not. I'll have to give that a shot next time.

You're my hero, Randy!

next time just add a little bit of chopped cilantro.

Nothing beats fresh guac.

I'm in Kentucky, so fuck it. Makes me happy when I'm gonna be bricked up in my house for a day or two...

Goddamn snow.

Love to, but it's so hard to find out here. I'll look harder.

Sounds delish. I'm glad it worked out well, man. Next time add fresh shucked corn off the cob.

Hmmm... Never thought about that, but it could be decent.

I think the lime juice keeps it from browning quickly.

my personal guac recipe that I think I've shared on here before:

2 ripe butter avocados
juice of one lime
1/2 onion chopped
a good handful of chopped cilantro (however much a bunch is at the market)
1 jalapeno minced
1 can sweet corn kernels drained
1 can black beans drained
1 large chopped tomato
pinch of kosher salt

I like mine loose, and the consistency is closer to a salsa, but it is awesome. Sometimes, I'll eat it in place of a meal with just some chips and maybe a little bit of poke (Hawaiian seasoned raw fish) or rare steak.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'd never begrudge a man his delicious guacamole.

In my head I just associate guac with sunny skies and shorts weather so I have this image of you sitting outside under an umbrella by a frozen over pool wearing a hawaiian shirt, shorts, and sandals eating guac and chips.

I always include either sour cream (preferred) or mayonnaise. (About 1-2 tablespoons per avocado.)

that's what the lime juice is for...

...and why would you add more fat to an already oily/fatty substance?

more importantly

Rotell in guacamole?

Is there a difference between using butter avocados and hass avocados?

Yeah, I'm going to have to agree with this. Fresh ingredients or nothing at all.

all the way

the thought of mayo in guacamole is actually making me ill

I've dissected cadavers without a problem....and seen all those disgusting pictures on the net people get grossed out with. No problem.

Yet this thread is giving me dry heaves.

Yeah. Butter avocados spoil faster, but they taste better, or they have a buttery consistency instead of the umm...fruitier...consistency of hass avocados. Also, they're not as stringy, and a little fattier...you know...like butter. Fresh ingredients always work best. One of my friends has an avocado farm, and lets me pick them fresh whenever I'm on that side of the island.

Nice, I'll have to give that a try sometime in the future.

I would have used sour cream, but didn't have any handy. Mayo sounds revolting.

:sick:Suck my balls, I'm snowed in and not trekking across 3 miles to get fresh ingredients.

leave the pit in the guacamole to keep it from browning. Not sure why it works but that is what my mom and grandma always did and it never browned. but then again it could have just been the lime juice.

Leave the pit in the middle of the guacomole and it won't go brown. I do this all the time. Add some cilantro and corn to it.
