This might become a recipe that I will bring to parties and large gatherings more often. I brought this to our New Year’s Eve celebration for when we had the munchies later in the evening. This recipe was quite easy to put together. I enjoyed the tomatoes because they gave the dish a bit of color. My husband also enjoyed the tomatoes because they were cut up so small!! I came across this recipe in my new Barefoot Contessa cookbook and decided that I should try it. The fact that avocados were on sale at the grocery store, helped too! Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the guacamole, but I trust that you know what it should look like!

- 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.
