Guacamole is a huge part of our family life. We eat it at least three times a week. I always make it fresh and it is pretty much always the same recipe. My kids scream out to me while they are playing and hungry; "Mama! Can you make me some mama's guacamole please. We are hungry!" And so it was given the name "mama's guacamole". After years of experimenting this recipe is just right.
mama's guacamole by amy twomey
4 avocados, ripe + must be Haas
1 diced clove of fresh garlic
half of a lime, squeeze over your hand to lessen chances of getting seeds in
salt and pepper to taste, we like ours salty
1 small red onion, diced
1/10 of a jalapeno pepper, diced or more if you want more of a kick
1 big handful of pecan-halves (I smash them in a zip lock bag)
Peel ripe avocados and place in a mixing bowl and smash with a potato smasher. Add the remaining ingredients.
