Smoky roasted garlic and habanero make for a deep, rich guacamole experience.
  • Can you just use the amount everyone's using for the amount of avocados used? I usually do however many people are coming, normally 4-5.
  • 3-4 Roma tomatoes, diced. I like seeds but i know people hate them so you can choose what you want to do with them. Sweetness of the romas helps cut down the spiciness of the habanero.
  • Half of a sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, rubbed with olive oil
  • 1 habanero stem and seeds removed, rubbed w/olive oil (if you want it hotter, keep some seeds)
  • Cilantro to taste or oregano
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper
  1. Roast the garlic and habanero for about 20-30 min at 400 degrees or until the garlic is soft. I normally roast it in a foil pocket.
  2. Mince the habanero and the garlic or whip them through the food processor 'till they're all mushed up.
  3. Lots and lots of lime juice. natural preferably
  4. Season to taste or enough to induce a heart attack.
  5. Ground pepper to garnish
I also learned a good low cal way to go: cut half of the avocados used. get a small bag of peas. cook as directed. rinse in cold water. blend to right consistency and add to guac. it's not only healthy but cost cutting, too!
