Guacamole with Crabmeat

    3 large, ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/2" pieces
    3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    1/3 cup minced cilantro leaves
    1 tablespoon minced jalapeno
    1 teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1/2 cup minced red onions
    1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomatoes
    2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 pound lump crabmeat, shells and cartilage removed
    Tortilla chips, for dipping

  In a large bowl, place all but 1/4 cup of the avocado pieces. Add
 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, 2 tablespoons of the cilantro,
 1 teaspoon of the jalapeno, 1/2 teaspoon of the cumin, 1/4 teaspoon
 of the garlic, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and a pinch of cayenne, and
 mash with the back of a fork until smooth. Add 1/4 cup of the onions
 and 1/4 cup of the tomatoes to the avocado mixture, and stir well to
 combine. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients with
 the crabmeat and gently toss to combine. Fold the crabmeat mixture
 into the mashed avocado mixture, stirring to combine, but being
 careful not to break up the crabmeat. Season to taste. Divide among
 4 chilled Martini glasses and serve with tortilla chips.
