La Paz's Guacamole

La Paz is a wonderful Mexican restaurant in Crestline Village in Mountain Brook. Their food is always really fresh. Kent came across this recipe so I thought I would share! If you've never made gaucamole, it's really easy and definitely better than buying it from the store.

La Paz's Guacamole
6 Hass avocados, peeled and seeded
3/4 cup diced fresh tomatoes
1 cup diced white onions
1/2 cup diced green chiles
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 tablespoon granulated garlic
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/4 tablespoon black pepper
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh jalapeno
1/8 cup fresh lime juice

Mash avocados with fork or potato masher. Add remaining ingredients. Serve immediately. Note: Use avocados at room temperature

Notes from Anna - If you don't have granualted garlic, just mince one small garlic clove. Also, if you like guacamole creamier, add a little sour cream.
