Start with the Serrano Chilis. Cut off
the tail, split them down the middle,
slice them into thin strips and finally
dice them into fine pieces. Warning:
Don't touch anything with chili hands.
It will burn for an hour.
Dice the onions and tomatoes (finer
than in the photo - we were hungry)
Rich likes to remove the juice from
the tomatoes but Amanda gets angry
when he does. Chose your poison.
In a clean bowl (or the cleanest one
you have) scoop out the avocados
and mash them with a fork. Leave it
a little lumpy just for fun. Now,
Amanda is very picky about this so
it's gotta be done just right.
First, add the salt to taste. Careful
as it is easy to oversalt guacamole.
Take a taste and savor it a moment.
Ok, now you're ready for the
serranos. Gently mix them in and
wait a long moment for no other
reason than to torture those starving
friends and family who are drooling
while looking over your shoulder with
a tortilla in hand. Good, that's
exactly Amanda's technique.
Next mix in the onions
Last but not least, the tomatoes.
Scoop a big spoonful into a tortilla
and gobble it down.
