OK, I cannot take credit for the title above. Over the weekend I attempted to make guacamole and when it came up, my nephew and friend, JoAnna, came up with the names.
Anyway, I was going to make the PW'S guacamole but when I got to the step where I was supposed to add the avocados and I realized that they were really under ripe. I tried to scoop them out and my spoon was bending so I decided to just throw everything into a food processor and pulse it a couple of times. I'm sorry that I didn't take a picture but instead of the guacamole being a smooth, chunky texture all of the different components were in equal little bits.
The texture was really interesting. It was like a lot more like a pico with minced pieces of avocado mixed in. It was so good that I had to make a second helping that same day.
I then decided to make the dish again on the 4th of July while watching fireworks and I got tons of compliments on it again. I did it the exact same way and the avocado were still not very ripe.
Bottom line, while I love the traditional guacamole this stuff was great! Don't let those "green" avocados scare you!!
