Cajun Guacamole

Cajun Guacamole recipe

Proudly flaunting its regional pride, this spicy guacamole features red peppers, cayenne, garlic and thyme.

Ingredients

* 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.

Instructions

  1. Set aside a small amount of the diced red peppers for garnish.
  2. Coarsely mash (DO NOT PUREE) avocados; stir in lemon juice.
  3. Fold in remaining ingredients.
  4. Top with reserved tomatoes and serve.

Serving Suggestions:

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.
