Guacamole the Dunkin Way


I have been using the same Guacamole recipe for soooo long I can't even remember where it came from. This is simple and tasty way to make Guacamole, and I will let you in on my secret!

If you buy an Avocado and place it in your refrigerator it will stay good for a very very long time, weeks even, and ripen very slowly!

2 medium Avocados, seeded, peeled and diced
1 thin slice of onion, chopped
1 tbl fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1 small tomato, diced

Mash everything together in a bowl, using a fork (except tomato)

Add the diced tomato to finished Guacamole and mix well

I always add a tablespoon or two of fat free Sour Cream to lighten the color up and give extra flavor.

I would like to give a Shout Out to "Great Cooks Community" for featuring me and my blog on the FRONT PAGE of their website. Great Cooks is a wonderful community of Foodies, so if you haven't signed up yet, now is the time!

I love freshly made homemade guacamole! There is nothing else like it.

As for dinner, IF my hubby were here, I would opt for a steak and shrimp dinner with the fixin's. Men just seem to love that. My kids love the heart-shaped pizza. I used to buy them (I know), but this year I had planned to make one, but am going to go visit my frail grandmother, so I think I will owe them one!
