Guacamole is definitely one of my favorite go-to appetizers. It’s really easy to make and almost everyone is a fan. This time of year I’m always entertaining and I can run into the kitchen and whip up a bowl of guacamole in no time flat whenever someone stops by.
Usually I stick to the original version–it never fails, but this time I decided to fancy it up a bit and added some lump crab meat to the mix–WOWZA!! It is fantastic. Crab and avocado are definitely the best of friends.
4 large avocados
1 small purple onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1 poblano pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 -1 teaspoon salt
Juice of a lime
8 ounces lump crab meat
To prepare the avocados–remove the pits and dice in the skin. Use a spoon to scoop the avocado from the skin. Place in a large bowl. Add the onion, garlic, jalapeño, and poblano. Stir to combine. Add the cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, (and the cilantro-if using–the husband does not like at all so I usually leave it out) and lime juice. Stir to combine. Add the lump crab meat and gently stir to combine. Taste and add remaining salt if needed.
