Guacamole

I remember as a kid, I saw adults going for this green stuff like it was gold. I would see them dipping chip after chip into this nasty looking green goo and acting as if it was THE most fabulous food in the world. Well, there was no way I was going to attempt to try putting something that looked like it belonged in a baby diaper into my mouth! Fast forward quite a few years and I regret that I did not try that green goo sooner! I absolutely LOVE guacamole! Now I understand why the adults went so crazy over the stuff!

My husband used to work with a bunch of Mexicans and we were invited to a cookout one of the families were having. I noticed one of the women was making some homemade guacamole so I decided to watch and see what she put in it so I can duplicate it at home and have some awesome authentic guacamole. I was pleasantly surprised at how simple it really was. Next time I made guacamole, I played around with the measurements until I got it right.

When I started my new way of eating, avocados were a forbidden food for a while and when I was finally able to have them again, I whipped up a batch and replaced the salt with aminos and it was as good as before. This is a mild flavored guacamole that goes well with all your favorite Mexican dishes as well as being great as a dip.
