How to Make Guacamole
This recipe for fresh guacamole is so good, it could win an Oscar! Literally…
On Sunday when the Academy hand out their annual awards, I am most excited to see who wins the “Animated Short” category.

One of the Animated Short Film nominees is titled “Fresh Guacamole.” It follows the preparation of this chip and dip favorite through the use of unusual objects. The entire film is only about 1:40 and is actually the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar!

I decided to see if the “recipe” presented in the video would actually taste good in real life, so I wrote down the ingredients as it was presented and followed through, step-by-step.

1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 jalapeño, seeds removed and chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all of the ingredients with a large mortar and pestle. Serve with chips.

Slice a jalapeño pepper in half and remove the seeds. Finely chop.

I will be backstage at the Oscars again this year, so stay tuned for the inside scoop behind the scenes! I will be live tweeting throughout the show and updating our Facebook page. Be sure to root for “Fresh Guacamole” and maybe even make a batch for your viewing party!
