Proudly flaunting its regional pride, this spicy guacamole features red peppers, cayenne, garlic and thyme.
* Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
Place in a bowl in the center of a serving plate and surround with celery stalks and cooked shrimp for dipping.
Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap directly against the surface of the guacamole.
