I grew up thinking avocados were terrible things. They were green, they were mushy, and they were full of fat. Luckily for me I am older and wiser now.
With the super bowl coming up I thought this AMAZING guacamole deserved a blog post all to itself. (You can find its first appearance here.)
Now the funny thing about the Superbowl.... I hate football.
Now what's the other funny thing? The word "football" has been the #1 keyword that has brought people to this blog. Weird, I know. Last year I wrote a blog post about how I spent the Superbowl. Who knew that one image of a football could generate traffic to a food blog.
The thing that I love about guacamole is that it is very forgiving. Add as much or as little of any of the ingredients as you like. Make it chunky or make it smooth. When I go to parties, I chop the Serrano peppers, white onion, tomatoes, and cilantro at home and mix them in a bowl. When I arrive, I cut my avocados fresh and mash them. I then stir in my tomato mixture, add lime juice, and pink Himalayan sea salt to taste. That way, your guests get truly FRESH guacamole prepared right in front of them.
