The other night we had some friends over to play games. During the nightly conversation the husband asked us how we like our guacamole. He said he had found a new guacamole recipe that he was excited to try because he never seems to make good guacamole. I didn't ask him what was in this recipe but now I'm curious.
I've grown up eating guacamole my whole life. Burritos or tacos for dinner without it? Never going to happen. My kids love avocados--when they were little I would feed it to them straight out of the skin. Avocados are something we eat a lot of. The other day I made a burrito and just put sliced avocados on the top. Over the years I've made a lot of guacamole too. I've added lots of spices and things like green onions, regular onions, cilantro, tomatoes, salsa, or sour cream to liven it up. If I am feeling like putting things in my guacamole I prefer some green onion and cilantro. But I have to say that I prefer my guacamole pure.
All I do is mash up the avocado and just sprinkle some salt and a little pepper in it and to me that is the perfect guacamole. That's how it was on our steak fajitas tonight and boy were they delicious! I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority though so I wonder, how do you take your guacamole?
