Guacamole from Barefoot Contessa courtesy of the Food Network

This makes wonderfully flavorful guacamole. You will not be able to resist eating the whole thing in one sitting. The lemon juice really keeps the avocados green and beautiful. Pump up the hot pepper sauce if you like it spicy.

Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 3 cups
User Rating:

4 ripe Haas avocados
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
8 dashes hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium tomato, seeded, and small-diced

Cut the avocados in 1/2, 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 pepper 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.
