These are a few of my favorite things - Vol. 2

I know there are people out there who don't like guacamole, and I just don't get it. What's not to like!

I also know that among those who do like guacamole, there are many different ways of making it - we each have our favorite. This is mine:

~ avocado
~ lime juice
~ finely diced onion
~ minced garlic
~ diced tomato
~ fresh cilantro
~ finely chopped hot pepper (if I have any, this time I didn't)
~ a little salt, to taste


This was made on Monday to go along with leftover Chicken Fajitas that we'd made on Sunday night. Husband and I polished it off in no time flat.

Hmmm... guacamole... I can say I don't think I like it. Have I ever eaten it? No. I just can't get past the look/texture of it to try it. (I have major texture issues)

You know, I never thought I'd like it and then I tried it and now I'm addicted to it. Yum!

I find guacamole quite tolerable.
Which makes no sense, since I absolutely loathe and despise avocados.
Humans? Making sense? Naaaah.

I don't like avocados. (and I call myself a health writer...). But I should probably keep trying guacamole to see if it grows on me.

Best quick easy recipe? Only works if you have access to reasonably good supermarket salsa, (the kind in a refrigerated tub, not a jar). But if you do, it's a great timesaver:

Mushed avocado
garlic salt.

Start with avocado, add salsa and garlic salt to taste.

(Personally, I like a LOT of garlic salt).

Sounds like it would be lame but it's much better than many restaurant guacs and only takes a minute.

(If it needs to travel, then add lime or it will turn brown.)
