I was sitting poolside with a Corona eating chips and guacamole in Ft. Lauderdale with my college roommate, her boyfriend, and his parents. This is circa 2007. She did not stay with this guy so I have never seen him or his parents again but I still have his mom’s guacamole recipe. I told her how much I loved it and she gave me the recipe and it’s the only way I make it.
I used only 2 avocados because it’s all I had but if making for a larger crowd (which is rare now if days) double this recipe. The original recipe is the doubled version.
Juice of one lemon if very juicy just use 1/2
1 small shallot
1/2 of a Roma tomato deseeded and diced
1 clove of garlic- grated
Small palmful of cumin
S&P to taste
5 dashes of hot sauce
Place avocados into a bowl and squeeze lemon juice then mash with a potato masher. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir with a fork.
