Babalu's Guacamole

Babalu Tacos and Tapas is a fun new restaurant in the funky Fondren District in Jackson, Mississippi.  Highly recommend it if you are in the area! 

Babalu is famous for their ah-mazing guacamole made table-side, and the actual recipe was featured recently in both Mississippi Magazine and Delta Magazine.  I'm thrilled to be able to share it with you!  I think the secret is the sun-dried tomatoes...

Babalu's Guacamole

2 Haas avocados, halved and seeded (need to be large; use 3 if they are smaller)
1 T. green onion, sliced thin on the bias
1 1/2 T. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 T. finely minced red onion
1 T. finely chopped cilantro
1 1/2 T. chopped sun-dried tomatoes
Kosher salt to taste 

Remove meat from avocados and place all ingredients in a bowl.  Sprinkle salt all over ingredients to evenly incorporate.  Mash with a spoon or large fork.  Babalu suggests a potato masher, which works well.  Keep mixture somewhat chunky, and serve with corn chips.
Recipe from Mississippi Magazine June/July 2011

I absolutely love their guacamole too and I've recently moved away so I'm happy to use your recipe so I can have that same taste here. Thanks!
