Holy Moley Gaucamole

"Ewww Yucky!" that's what my son says when I make guacamole. "Yummy in my tummy!" is what I say, or is that what Simms says when I make pancakes? Either way guacamole is yummy (don't listen to my son). Right behind the white queso cheese dip, guacamole happens to be my second favorite dip in the entire universe. It is fresh and green, full of health benefits, and in a way tastes like you're eating a stick of butter. It's a win win in my opinion!
This is the most simple guacamole known to man, and probably my favorite; one because it is O' so good and two because you don't have dragon breath lingering around the rest of the day.

Holy Moley Gaucamole












Ingredients:
1 avocado, peeled and diced
2 tbsp cilantro
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp cayenne pepper (if you're tough add more; I usually do)

Directions:
In a small bowl add avocado and remaining ingredients. Smash avocado with fork and stir till combined. Serve with tortilla chips then lick the bowl clean.


One lovely ripe avocado.


Slice in half. Both the avocado and lime.


Make cross cuts and then flip the skin inside out.


The pieces will fall out in a perfect melodic chorus!


Add a bunch of fresh, chopped cilantro and lime juice.


Add that cayenne pepper, as much as your little heart desires or mouth can handle. Do it!


Smash with a fork and mix well.


Dig in! Holey Moley, thank you Lord!

Megan,

You ought to add some fresh garlic, diced red onion, and diced tomatilloes.

You won't regret it.

That sounds good. Never thought about the diced tomatilloes. I'll have to try that! Thanks!
