Guacamole de Los Dioses

Dulce y Picante
If you don't speak Spanish, then allow me to perform a mild translation: This is the "Guacamole of The Gods." Sweet and Spicy. This is the product of an idea from friends combined with some of my favorite Mexican flavors. So enough with the monologue. Here are the goods.
Mandatory Ingredients:
  1. 5 Avocados (not too firm, not too soft)
  2. 2 Peeled Navel Oranges
  3. 1/8C Diced Jalapenos
  4. 3T El Pato Sauce (ideally replace with Carolina's salsa and fore go garlic)
  5. 1t Minced Garlic
  6. 1T Crushed Red Pepper
  7. 2 Limes (not key limes)
  8. 2t Black Pepper
  9. 1t Salt
  10. 1 Bunch of Diced Cilantro
  11. 1/2 Bunch of Diced Green Onions
  12. 1/2 Finely Diced Red Onion

Optional Ingredients:

  • 2 Diced Tomatoes

I personally do not prefer tomatoes in my guacamole, but I can't speak for everyone.

Instructions:

For a more course and thick consistency, squeeze in lime juice and add contents, then blend by hand using a knife and spoon (slicing grid patterns in mixing bowl and turning the mix with the spoon, repeated to desired distribution and thickness). Spoon in diced tomatoes following regular mixing if desired.

For a smoother consistency, squeeze in lime juice and add contents, then machine blend in 2sec pulses with pauses to shake and tap larger contents to the bottom of the blender. Spoon in diced tomatoes following regular mixing if desired.

Personalization:

  • If you want it sweeter, add orange (not lime juice, this will taste sour over extended storage).
  • If you want it hotter, add more red crushed pepper (not jalapenos, to prevent elevated spice from storage).

If your friends have a problem with you double-dipping in this green goodness, simply get yourself some new friends. It shouldn't be too hard with your new found party dip recipe. Go ahead and take credit, just don't bring it to my party.
