Celebrity (esque) Guacamole

You are probably wondering what the deal is with that name. Allow me to explain.

Guacamole reminds me of the MN State Fair. Up until very recently, there was a delicious upscale Mexican restaurant by the name of Tejas located in Edina, MN. This restaurant also had a very popular spot at the state fair. My mother-in-law, who is the director of the State Fair Foundation, is friends with the owner and chef of this restaurant. Well, each day of the fair, Tejas would do a feature called Celebrity Guacamole. The way it worked is they would bring in a local "celebrity," and I am using that term extremely loosely here, and would do a sort of interview as the owner, and head chef made a batch of guacamole with the guest. One day a few years back, Kay was asked to be the guest for Celebrity Guacamole. She agreed, but then got busy, or maybe just decided she didn't want to do it, and sent Miles to do it instead (see what I mean by loosely?). So, he did. Miles got to feel like a celebrity for 10 minutes, and he also learned a few tricks to making very tasty guacamole.

This recipe is our own, but the secret ingredient, Worcestershire sauce, is from Tejas. It is that special something that sets this recipe apart.

If you are not already a local celebrity, make this guacamole to share. Don't be surprised if your popularity starts increasing!

Guacamole, Miles Style
Miles roasts his jalapeno on a foil lined pan under the broiler. Keep and eye on it. Allow the skin to blister and darken, but don't let it get completely charred

You will need:

4 ripe avocados
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 medium tomato, diced
1 roasted jalapeno, finely diced
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

To begin, slice your avocados in half, and remove the seeds by lightly whacking (is that the right word?) the pit with the blade of your knife, and then slightly twisting to remove.

Like this...

Then, using a large spoon, scoop the flesh from the skins.

Put your avocados in a medium bowl and mash them with a fork or potato masher. We like ours a little chunky.

Honestly, this is so simple. Add all your ingredients, and stir them together.

 Taste it on a chip before you add the salt and pepper.

Begin snacking.
