Easy Guacamole

I was never a picky eater however there were certain things I didn’t eat until I was a young adult. Things such as blue cheese, sushi and avocados were way too sophisticated for my taste buds back then. When I was about 20 years old and working in a Mexican restaurant, I took the plunge. The restaurant made this great chicken and avocado salad that made me like avocados. They also had a nice, thick blue cheese dressing that I started to put on salads. Sushi was not on a Mexican menu, but on a slow afternoon, one of the bartenders decided to order some sushi for lunch. This was my first taste and it took a few tries before I could say I liked sushi. I was on my way to culinary sophistication.

Since then, avocados have become an addiction of mine. I can mash them up and put them on everything. They also are a good breakfast, lunch or dinner food. But my favorite way to eat avocados is as a snack or appetizer. This guacamole has the perfect amount of onions, garlic and lime juice. My husband doesn’t care for the onions but this past week I made the guacamole for my book club. The onions still went in and there were more leftovers just for me.

I served this dip with tortilla chips while sipping on a Mojito. The next day I finished straight off a spoon.
