Over the years, I thought I had perfected it pretty good, especially after The King and I took the Salsa Salsa excursion on our cruise last year. We made homemade salsa, guacamole, and margaritas and was probably the best excursion we've been on. However, my guacamole needed something. It was good but it was lacking something. Some little something that separated it from okay to "Holy Guacamole".
Then this last week on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, we ordered table side guacamole a couple of times. I think I figured out the missing ingredient. I usually only use lime juice. They used lime juice, lemon juice, and orange juice.
Sooo... I gave it another try. Yes indeed, it's Holy Guacamole! Here's what you'll need to make your Holy Guacamole.
2 ripened avocados
1 heaping tablespoon jalapeno, finely chopped
1 heaping tablespoon red onion, finely chopped
1 heaping tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
1 heaping tablespoon tomato, finely chopped
Juice of 1/4 of a lime
juice of 1/4 of a lemon
Juice of 1/4 of an orange
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
Peel and smash the avocado, add the lime, lemon, and orange juice.
Mix together. Add remaining ingredients and mix together. Serve with chips..... and of course a margarita would go well together with it too.
I chopped a small onion, a large jalapeno pepper, a handful of cilantro, and a roma tomato and had enough to make 2 batches of Holy Guacamole.
William said it tasted better on the Riverwalk. Why is that??... does the atmosphere add the secret ingredient that REALLY makes it Holy Guacamole, or is the fact that someone else made it for you? I don't know but either way it was pretty darn tasty!
