Tips & Tricks:
- It is important to try to cut the jalapeño very small so it spreads evenly around. Big chunks will lead to some really spicy bits and other ones that are bland.
- Looking for more heat? add cayenne or crushed red pepper flakes
- Guacamole is great with tortilla chips. We recommend corn tortilla chips. Try our recipe here!
