Italian Guacamole — fresh basil is the rockstar of this delicious twist on classic guacamole.
3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
2 large cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 jalapeno, stem and seeds removed, finely chopped
1 roma tomato, cored and finely chopped (or 3 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes)
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
pinch of coarse black pepper
1. Mash together all ingredients together with a fork until combined.
Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
2. Serve immediately, or cover the bowl with plastic wrap (so that the
plastic is literally touching the entire top layer of the guacamole)
