Ike’s Famous “Guac” (guacamole dip) – Ike Robinson
Ike has been perfecting this recipe for several years and in my opinion, he's achieved his goal! We love it...enjoy!
4 ripe Avocados
3 vine ripened tomatoes
1 bunch of green onions
2 lemons (my family uses limes because we prefer the taste....up to you)
To taste – crushed red pepper (I usually do about 8 shakes)
To taste – hot sauce (about 3 to 4 shakes)
1 tablespoon salt – after you taste it, you may want to add more (we omit this for obvious reasons)
1 tablespoon malt vinegar - optional
- Cut the avocados in ½ (long ways), take the pit out & use a spoon to scoop out into a LARGE bowl.
- Peel the tomatoes, then slice & dice & dump into the large bowl.
- Clean & chop off the hairy end of the green onions. Now chop off just the white part & dice as fine as you like (some like chunks – yuck). Toss them into the large bowl.
- Cut the lemons (or limes) in ½ & squeeze the juice into the large bowl. (I prefer to use a juicer to get rid of seeds – if you don’t have a squeezer, just pluck the seeds out with a spoon)
- Into the LARGE bowl, shake in the crushed red peppers, hot sauce, salt & malt vinegar.
- With potato masher (the hand one, no machines please) mash all the ingredients together. – Now you know why I say LARGE bowl! Mash to a consistency of lumpy.
- Eat, drink & enjoy!
Great with tortilla chips & a Corona!!!
And just so you know, other than those pesky calories (that again I don't count and neither does the rest of the free world anymore) avocados are very low in carbs and this is actually a good, healthy snack. Again, happy Superbowl (or any other gathering....and a good side dish to any Mexican feast you decide to cook at home)!
