I first tasted this outstanding guacamole at our
Louisiana Crawfish Boil. This guacamole recipe is so good
and very addictive! It not for the "faint of heart."

Dips & Spreads,
Yields: serves many
Prep time: 20 min
1 large jalapeno
chile pepper, washed and dried*
1 serrano or pasilla chile pepper, washed and dried*
tomatillos, husked and rinsed**
2 large tomatoes (preferably vine-ripened), seeds removed
1/2 large red onion
1 bunch fresh cilantro, stems removed and discarded
Juice of 1 to 2 freshly-squeezed limes
6 to 7 large ripe
avocados, peeled, seed removed, and diced
salt or to taste
* You can adjust the amount of chile peppers according to your taste.
** Remove the tomatillo husks before using (the husks are inedible), and rinse
under running water before using as the tomatillo is covered by a sticky substance.
Preheat the broiler of your oven.
Place chili peppers, tomatillos, tomatoes, onion, and garlic clove
on a baking sheet in a single layer; broil 3 to 5 minutes on each side until blackened. Remove
from oven. Learn how to roast and steam chile peppers.
Place the blackened hot chile peppers in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap or an
airtight lid, and allow to steam for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove
chile peppers. Using a sharp knife, remove stems, skins and seeds (if desired).
Roughly chop tomatillos, chile peppers, and onion. Place in food processor or blender and
add the garlic, cilantro, and lime juice. Pulse until smooth.
Always wear gloves when working with hot chile peppers (fresh, dried or
roasted chiles). Never touch your eyes when working with chile pppers. Please
don't learn this lesson the hard way!
Mash the diced avocadoes and combine with the guacamole mixture. Season to taste with salt.
Pour guacamole mixture into a serving bowl and serve with your favorite chips!/
