Groovy Guacamole

Posted by in The Kitchen

Lots of lime and lemon juice add fresh, bright notes to this luscious, rich guacamole. And yes, some secrets are revealed! Simple, “home style” salsa and bottled chipotle hot sauce add subtle heat and depth, while cumin and cilantro round out the flavor spectrum. Serve with chips, of course, but try using leftovers in omelettes the next day!

And yeah, those are avocado pits!
