The Best Guacamole

I love guacamole. Love it. Love, love, love, love, love it! The thing is, good store-bought guacamole is hard (and expensive) to come by around these parts. The logical solution: home make guacamole.

My problem when I fist started doing that is that I didn't trust the recipes. They said "1 avocado" and I was all, "Yeah, right." So I'd end up with a guacamole that tasted like avocado and nothing else. So, even though this recipe only calls for one avocado, please trust the recipe. It isn't called "The Best" guacamole for nothing.

You will need the following ingredients for this recipe:

-1 medium to large avocado
-1 medium tomato
-1 small or ½ medium to large onion
-1 clove garlic
-1-2Tbsp chopped jarred banana peppers (mild or hot)
-Approximately 1Tbsp jarred banana pepper juice

Start by cutting up the avocado and smashing it with a fork in a bowl.

Dice up the tomato and onion and add them to the bowl. Next add the garlic.

Next, take your banana pepper rings or chunks and dice them up very, very finely and add them to the mix.

The secret ingredient that makes this the best guacamole ever is the banana pepper juice. It's all to taste, really, but I put a specific amount for those among us who must have a specific amount to go off of, which is fine.

Take a fork and mix all the ingredients together. Eat with tortilla chips, or whatever you prefer.
