Dan Rubenstein's Tomatillo Salsa & Hot Sauce Guacamole: Super Bowl Guacamole Extravangza
Recipe type: dip

Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
Tomatillo salsa and hot sauce give guacamole a smooth consistency, brightness and heat to the creamy avocados.
  • Avocados
  • Finely diced red or sweet onion
  • Salsa Verde (I find grabbing extra at a neighborhood salsa bar to be the best strategy here. Also, I like the color to be as bright green as possible, so using this instead of red salsa appeases me. I also just prefer tomatillo)
  • Cilantro (a solid palm full, adjust for taste), chopped pretty finely
  • Hearty amount of lime, keeps it fresher, and I like the tang
  • Very finely chopped jalapeño, I go easy
  • Few squirts of hot sauce for heat, but not so much that it darkens the bright greenness of the guac
  • Pinches of salt and pepper to bring everything out
  • Probably a little less than half a red onion for 3-4 avocados. Excuse me lack of measurements, probably a couple of salsa bar containers of salsa verde. I'd use very little jalapeño (less than one), just because I prefer my guac to be richer than it is spicy. 2-3 dashes of hot sauce.
  1. In a bowl, combine ½ a minced red onion, chopped cilantro, a small amount of jalapeno and salsa verde.
  2. Add 3-4 avocados, the juice of 2 limes and a few hits of hot sauce.
  3. Fold together until just shy of desired avocado chunkiness.
  4. Season with salt until pepper to taste and mix to desired consistency.
