There's a little place on the island of Cozumel in Riviera Maya, Mexico, that makes an incredible amaretto tequila. It makes for an amazing additive for baking, but we also found that it gives a great sweet and nutty quality to our guacamole!
No worries if you don't have amaretto tequila. Amaretto extract and regular tequila work well, too!
- 2 medium size avocado
- 1/4 cup minced white onion
- 2 tbsp cilantro
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp white salt
- 1tbsp pepper
- 1/2 to 1 shot of amaretto tequila
- Cut each ripe avocado in half and remove seed. Scoop avocado out of peels and into medium-size mixing bowl.
- Using a fork, mash the avocado to desired consistency. I tend to like it on the smooth side, but if you want a chunky guacamole, be careful not to mash too much.
- Add lonion, cilantro, lemon juice, black pepper, and amaretto tequila. Mix well.
- Begin adding salt gradually, tasting along the way to manage desired sweetness. If guacamole is too sweet, continue adding salt to balance it.
- Scoop amaretto tequila guacamole into chilled serving bowl and enjoy!
This dip goes well with tortilla chips and as a topping to fish tacos!
