My guacamole tastes a little different than most.  I would like to think it tastes a little fresher.  I add cumin and lime juice, which in my mind makes it Mexanisian, a fusion of my favorite Mexican and Tunisian flavors.  Itʼs a result of my Southern Californian roots and my Tunisian Mediterranean blood and palate.  Both tend to be heavy on the homestyle cooking and have many crossover ingredients; cumin, citrus, fresh herbs, and chili peppers to name a few.  This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a big crowd.


2 ripe avocados diced
1 roma tomato diced
1/4 cup cilantro finely chopped
1 serrano chile diced
3 tbs finely diced red onion
1 large clove of garlic
1/4 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbs lime juice

If you want to be super authentic, you should mix your guacamole in a molcajete, which is the traditional Mexican version of a mortar and pestle.  I just use a bowl because I like mine a little on the chunky side.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Garnish with a little cilantro sprig.
