Holy Guacamole!

Well, turns out I am not skilled enough to create a separate page for recipes so I will be mixing recipes in with regular blog posts.  Maybe some day I’ll get some actual help in managing this blog site.  But, for now, you are stuck with me. So, today I thought I’d share with you my world famous (I might be exaggerating a tad bit) guacamole.  I happen to think it’s pretty awesome. My kids love it.  My husband loves it.  It even converted my sister-in-law to a lover of guacamole and she hates avocados.  We eat it with chips, I put it on nachos, I even use it to top burgers (along with a little chipotle mayo).  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  The problem is, I don’t really have a recipe.  It’s a bit of this and a bit of that.  But I’ve recently had requests for a recipe so I’ve tried to put some measurements to my concoction.  Here goes…

  1. 4-5 small avocados, ripe
  2. 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  3. 1 cup packed cilantro, leaves and stems ok, finely chopped
  4. 1/3 cup finely diced red onion
  5. 1/2 large lime, juiced
  6. large pinch Kosher salt (or to taste)
  7. 10 turns pepper grinder (or to taste)

Combine and enjoy!  This recipe serves about 5-6 when used as a dip.  Let the fiesta begin!
