Kickem Guacamole

You simply can't beat it!  Fresh guacamole is so creamy and goes with so many things.  Serve on Tacos, Tostados or Nachos for the perfect compliment.  Enjoy with tortilla chips, or baked pita chips and you've got a pleasing snack.  It's so simple you'll be serving it often.  Make this recipe for your next get together and you'll be a hit.

2 Large Haas Avocados
3 Large Crushed Garlic Cloves
2 Chopped Roma Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Chopped Onions
1/4 Cup Diced Hatch Peppers
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

Split avocados down the middle.  With a knife rotate the seed until it breaks free.  Remove the pulp with a spoon and mash with  a fork.  Add remaining ingredients and and mix well.  Let set for at least thirty minutes for a seasoned taste.

TIP:  Buying fresh hatch peppers and dicing your own is economical and easy.  Coat pepper with olive oil and bake on a low temperature in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  Once you remove the pepper from the oven the skin will peel off easily.  Dice the pulp and store in refrigerator.  Use in your favorite recipes for great flavor.
