Guacamole My Way!


Recently the California Avocado Association via Foodbuzz offered to send me some of their awesome Avocado's to try. They arrived carefully packed and are absolutely gorgeous! They included an awesome little tool which makes cutting and removing the meat of the Avocado a breeze, Thank you!

The first thing I knew I had to make was my locally famous Guacamole. I know everyone has a different spin on how they make guacamole, I know I sure do! I am a garlic fiend so you will find at least two cloves of garlic in mine, tastes great and keeps the Vamp's away.

2 large California Avocados
3 tablespoons onion minced quite small
1/2 lime juiced
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped tomato
salt and pepper to taste

Cut your avocados in half, remove seed, remove the meat and dice well. Add in your other ingredients and mash mash mash, I like mine smooth, but if you like yours chunky go for it!

One note on Avocado's they keep in your fridge for a very long time. I almost always have one in my crisper drawer. I figured this out by forgetting one in my crisper drawer for about a month, I pulled it out and it was still good! Perhaps the cool slows down the ripening process?

Last year, I received a box from these nice folks. We love avocados (I'm from California, right??!) Guac is my fave. My way is avocado, lime juice, fresh garlic and cilantro. Your way sounds great, too. As long as I have plenty of chips and cold beer, I'm good!

I live for guacamole.

I've never used sour cream in my guacamole. I'll wager it takes it up a notch or two. Your recipe sounds delicious and I can see why it has local renown. Have a great day, Cheryl. Blessings...Mary
