Guacamole Recipe – Courtesy Ina Garten

4 Haas Avocados

3 Tbsp. Freshly squeezed lemon juice

5 Dashes of Tabasco

1 Tomatoes Diced

½ c. Small diced red onion

1 Garlic clove minced

1 tsp. Kosher salt

1 tsp. Fresh ground pepper

Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl. (I use my hands.) Immediately add the lemon juice, hot sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
