Perfect Guacamole

Recipe courtesy Nordstrom Entertaining at Home

Chef Kuesel’s adjustments noted by “*”

6 Avocados
1 tomato, cored and chopped
1/3 cup red onion minced
*3 cloves garlic minced
¼ Jalapeno pepper, seeded de-ribbed, finely minced
*¼ Serrano pepper, seeded, de-ribbed, finely minced
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
¼ Cup sour cream
*1 Tablespoon Smoked Tabasco
*1/3 small can of smoked chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to give it a smoky richness.
Kosher salt and Black Pepper to taste


Drink: I like this with Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc.  You could also have it with a margarita.  For a little more sass, muddle a few Jalapeno’s into the pool bar margarita like they do at Mondrian Miami Beach.

Where I’ve had this item at a restaurant: The only place that has Guacamole this good is at a small private club called Club 3711.  They don’t have a website and it is invitation only.  Call me if you will be in Chicago and I might be able to get you on the list.
