Boris Karloff’s Guacamole Recipe
Boris Karloff is one of the true icons of horror cinema and is most well known for his portrayal of Frankenstein’s monster in Frankenstein (1931). He also played the role of the narrator in Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
He is less well known for his guacamole recipe and his love of Mexican food. According to the newspaper clipping, guacamole is an “avocado-based sauce” and can be “served on a bed of lettuce as a salad or with fried tortilla wedges as an appetizer or simply as a sauce.”
And don’t forget to add the booze. Karloff’s guacamole recipe calls for 2 tsp of sherry. I don’t know how much alcoholic-avocado-based sauce it takes to get you drunk, but I guess we’re about to find out. Don’t be scared.
1 med. tomato, chopped fine
1 small onion, minced
1 tbsp. chopped canned green chiles
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp sherry
Dash cayenne, optional
Peel and mash avocados. Add onion, tomato and chiles, then stir in lemon juice, sherry and seasonings to taste, blending well. Serve as a dip for tortilla pieces or corn chips or as a canape spread. Makes 10 to 12 appetizer servings.
