There are few things that say party more than guacamole. It comes together in minutes, and alongside a handful of tortilla chips and a cold beer, summer is complete.
But oh, how often have you had BAD guacamole? Or even worse, the store-bought kind that's so runny that it looks like bile? Blech!
Make your own! You can't say you don't know how now. Plus, it's handy when you're about to say a naughty word and the kiddies are around. Holy guacamole!
1 small shallot, minced
Juice of 1-2 limes
3 avocados, 2 mashed and 1 chopped up
1 garlic clove, minced
Handful of cilantro, chopped
Dash of cumin
Dash of garam masala or curry powder
1 tomato, seeded and diced (optional; I didn't have any and it was still good!)
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
