The smell of chile de árbol always chokes me as it boils. A small price to pay for the final delight that the little spicy chile brings to me once I put it into my guacamole. You see, by nature I love my food spicy, but it has to be tasty, too. What I usually do is make a super small batch of chile de árbol salsa, then add the whole thing to my avocado mixture. It makes for a watery guacamole and gives it a weird color, too; but one dip of a corn chip, and you will finish the bowl in no time. I’m always surprised if I stop to breath in between dips. I become a robotic spicy guacamole eater with a one-track mind! Try it out by yourself first because everyone reacts differently to it; once you know how you’ll act, feel free to make it for others.
