Chef Noire: How To Make Crunchy Herbed Guacamole

January 25, 2013  |  

You don’t have to hit up your favorite Mexican restaurant when you’re craving chips and guacamole. Why not make your own with this quick recipe?


2 Ripened avocados, halved and pitted
3 Small red radishes, diced
¼ Cup finely chopped cilantro
¼ Cup snipped fresh chives
Kosher salt or table salt, to taste
Juice of ½ lime
Bottled Chipotle Hot Pepper Sauce (optional)


Scoop avocado flesh (for best results, inside a molcajete) and add the cilantro, chopped chives, lime juice, and chipotle hot pepper sauce. Gently mash with pestle until the desired consistency is reached. Fold in diced radishes and season with salt to taste.
