This recipe for Guacamole is one of the best I have ever had, and it is all thanks to my amazing husband. He has made this recipe for many events and it is always a hit…the secret (or so we think) is the clove of crushed garlic. While it doesn’t overwhelm with garlic flavors, it gives a beautiful little kick to the recipe. What usually happens is that he is asked to make Guacamole, then he asks if I’ll ‘help’ him and I cut and chop, slice and dice, and then he comes and uses his muscles to mash everything together…and then I get to taste test, I’m very happy when I get to do that haha, so it’s always fun making guacamole.
I’ve also heard it is ok to use Poblano Peppers instead of Jalapenos, and I’ve heard that you can use a potato masher to mash all the avocados, although we’ve only used a fork for the mashing- Hope you enjoy!
