If you guessed by now, I love avocado. I grew up in California down from my grandparent’s home that had two HUGE avocado trees. I never knew what an avocado cost until I moved to Nevada and boy what a culture shock that was.
Nevertheless, I still love avocados and will purchase them from Costco where they are a little nicer on the wallet.
With Cinco De Mayo upon us I decided to make guacamole for the kids and I.
Guacamole is a great avocado dip for chips or even as a side for enchiladas, taco salad or even on Nachos.
- 3 avocados, pitted and peeled
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 shallots, chopped
- 3 tablespoons cilantro, fresh and chopped
- salt to taste
Mash avocados. Add lemon fold in the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy right away.
