Guacamole Anyone

When I was pregnant with Caston there was one food and one food alone that cured my carvings- Mexican!

I wanted it all....chips and dip, tacos, burritos, enchiladas....but mostly guacamole!

Guacamole is very simple to make too. We usually have avocados laying around the kitchen as well (did you know that avocados are very good for your health)! Doctors even believe that avocados are a cancer fighter....so eat up!

Here's my simple guacamole recipe that will suit your fancy!

Kick-Up Guacamole
3 medium avocados, very ripe
1 shallot, minced
1 small jalapeno chili, seeded and minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup lime juice, fresh
1/2 tsp. lime zest
1 T. olive oil
1 tsp. salt

Place avocados and lime juice in bowl and mash with a fork, lightly. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and serve with chips!
