*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.
Roll the watermelon to find the flattest side; place that side on bottom. Slice the top third of the watermelon off. Wrap and set aside. Hollow out the red watermelon from the remaining watermelon section; reserve the fruit for another use. A rice paddle works well for this task. Make sure all of the red part of the watermelon is removed. Pat dry with paper towels, then sprinkle with salt. Place upside down on a rimmed tray lined with paper towels and refrigerate overnight.
For the guacamole, gently combine all the ingredients in a medium size serving bowl. Let sit for at least 10 minutes for the flavors to blend.
With paper towels, rub inside of watermelon bowl to remove the salt and thoroughly dry. Fill with Firecracker Guacamole, serve and enjoy!
Variation: For a milder guacamole, substitute a mild chili pepper for the habanero, or omit the chili pepper.
