Wasabi-Spiced Guacamole

This is not your granddaddy's guacamole! East meets west in this zesty wasabi guacamole that's great for dipping chips, veggies, peel-n-eat shrimp, and even egg rolls, and also tasty as a sandwich condiment. Serve it at your next football party or tailgating event, but just make sure to warn your guests of its sinus-clearing properties!

1 large avocado or 2 small avocados, peeled, pitted & cut into chunks
1 tsp wasabi powder
1 tsp Dave's Soyabi Sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
Juice of half a lime or lemon
Pinch of ground cayenne, red pepper or habanero powder
Pinch of salt, to taste (you can omit if desired)

Chunky Version: Place all ingredients in a bowl and use a fork or potato masher to mash everything to desired consistency, making sure to combine thoroughly.

Smooth Version: Place all ingredients in food processor and process until smooth.

Use right away, or cover the surface of the guacamole with plastic wrap (to prevent browning) and refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.

Zestfully yours,

PS: If you love wasabi, make sure to check out Blair's Q Heat Wasabi Green Tea Sauce, a deliciously spicy and creamy sauce that blends together real wasabi with jalapenos, ginger, cilantro and green tea. Fabulous on Asian and Mexican fare, including sushi, grilled foods, veggies, etc. And instead of boring wasabi peas, try gourmet Wasabi Peanuts as a snack. Save money and enjoy all three great wasabi products when you order the Wasabi Gift Set from the Carolina Sauce Company!
