Guacamole with Cherry Habanero Jelly

I've been on the hunt for some habanero jelly so that I can replicate one of our favorite appetizers from an Akron Mexican Restaurant. Although I haven't found pure habanero jelly yet, this cherry habanero jelly was too good not to purchase. The vendor said it's good on ice cream also, we haven't tried that yet.

A Vegetarian & Cooking! original.

-2 avocados
-1 tomato, diced
-1 shallot, diced
-Lime juice
-Salt, to taste
-Cherry Habanero Jelly (or really any other habanero jelly, you want there to be some heat)
-Tortilla chips

Remove the avocados from their shells and mash with a fork until smooth. Stir in the diced tomato and shallot, lime juice and salt. Stir to combine. Make a depression in the guacamole and add as much cherry habanero jelly as you'd like. Serve with tortilla chips.

I really liked the sweet heat that came from this dish. I think that jelly lends itself well to guacamole, because it helps to give extra flavor without overpowering the delicate flavor of the avocado. The heat from the habanero is tempered by the cherry and avocado and adds a nice level of heat without being too aggressive.
