Spicy Habanero Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole is one of my absolute favorite foods. I remember trying it at a local Mexican restaurant chain when I was a young child, and I have been hooked since! When I was in college, I worked at a small Mexican joint known for their delicious guacamole (in part just so I could get free guacamole on my dinner break). I also love absolutely anything that is spicy – hot sauce, wasabi, chili powder, fresh chilis. This recipe features a spicy, flavorful twist on a traditional guacamole recipe with El Yucateco Habanero sauce. This guacamole can be used not only to top nachos, tacos, and burritos, but also use it to kick up your scrambled eggs or chicken salad.

Combine the ingredients in a large bowl (with the exception of the hot sauce – that will be added last).

I like my guacamole to have a nice texture, so I use a fork to mash the ingredients until just combined.

I divided the guacamole into two bowls. I gave the mildly-seasoned guacamole to the children. For me and my husband, I added several dashes of the El Yucateco Habanero hot sauce. Did I mention that he loves spicy food, too?
