Goat Cheese Guacamole

Would anyone agree with me when I saw that the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is the worst thing to watch if you’re even just a little bit hungry? If I put that show on, my mouth is immediately watering for something greasy and fattening.

This past Sunday, I put on the TV and sure enough, there was Guy Fieri at a restaurant in Cleveland that serves “mod mex.” They showed about six different types of guacamole, one of them with goat cheese, and I knew I had to try it. Since I’m a big fan of both – why not merge the two? So I did – and it was amazing. I would have taken my own photo, but my camera died, so I had to use the one above! Anyway, here’s the recipe:

Goat Cheese Guacamole

3 ripe avocadoes
1 small tomato, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
4 ounces goat cheese
1 small pepper – I used habanero
Juice from one lime
Salt and pepper to taste

Mash avocadoes in bowl until smooth. Stir in tomato, onion, garlic, pepper and goat cheese, taking care to break up goat cheese evenly. Add lime juice, salt and pepper to taste and stir to mix. Serve and enjoy!

Have you tried guacamole with any fun additions?
