Spokes-Women Movie Night Guacamole


Liz Smith

The Spokes-Women movie night has become a club tradition that enables the club to get together for a non-riding activity in the colder months of the year. Usually there is a great deal of eating and chatting, and not much movie-watching. Our most recent get-together at Judy & Tam's house was no exception! The food theme was Mexican, and the menu included seven layer dip, chips & salsa, guacamole, a wonderful salad, chili with beans, a taco bar with all the fixings, a Mexican style chocolate mousse, and an exotic fried plantain dessert. Yummy!

A few people asked me for my guacamole recipe, so here it is.

2 ripe Haas avocadoes (the darker, bumpier kind)
Juice of half a lime (this keeps the avocadoes from turning brown)
1/4 cup finely minced red onion
2-3 cloves of garlic, very finely minced
1 or 2 jalapeno peppers, finely minced
3 tablespoons or so of store-bought salsa (the refrigerated kind if available)
Several dashes of Lea & Perrins chicken marinade (or regular Worcestershire if the light colored stuff is not available - go easy on this or the guacamole will get too dark)
A few dashes of ground cumin
Ground black pepper to taste
Several shakes of Louisiana style hot sauce (such as Frank's - optional)

Peel, seed and slice the avocadoes and place chunks into a glass or stainless bowl. Squeeze the half of a lime sprinkling the juice over the avocado chunks. Mash up the avocadoes with a fork, leaving them a little chunky.

Stir in the onion, garlic, peppers, salsa, Lea & Perrins, cumin and black pepper. Taste the mixture and add the hot sauce if desired. Several of the ingredients contain salt so I don't add any more - you may prefer yours with a little added salt.

Chill, then serve with chips, or in tacos, or as a garnish for Judy & Tam's most excellent chili. This goes especially well with super-premium tequilas.
