The past couple of days have been tiring! I have worked 12 hour days, so I apologize for not commenting, but I promise to try to get to everyone’s comments. I want you to know how much I appreciate them and I do read them all!
Today’s recipe makes me so happy because I was able to eat it without getting ill. Sounds funny huh? It seems in the past when I had anything with avocado I would get a horrible stomach ache. But I’m a glutton for punishment so I thought I would try avocados one last time and guess what? no stomach ache!! Woohoo!!
This guacamole is creamy and smooth just like a baby’s bottom. It’s so good I could totally eat by the spoonful! The guacamole that is, not the baby’s bottom. lol
I decided to add just a little bit of jalapeno which gives it the right amount of kick! It’s perfect! I also added some onions, garlic, lime juice and other goodies to it. This is perfect for scooping with chips, adding to sandwiches,wraps, taco’s and topping enchilada’s and burritos, oh the possibilities are endless. Personally I think dipping into chips is the best way to go!!! How do you like to eat your guacamole?
This recipe only makes one cup, so if you want more, which you will, I recommend doubling the recipe. I went small on portion because I wasn’t sure if I could eat it, so next time you know I will most definitely be doubling or tripling this recipe!! he he You have know idea how glad I am that I was able to have guacamole. I always avoided it because of getting sick, but not anymore baby!!! I’m all into this now!!
