See What's Cookin' - Guacamole



Guacamole is one of my all time favorite things in the whole wide world.  If I had it my way, I'd have it available to me for constant snacking all day long, every day.  And because I love it so much, I thought I'd share my family's recipe.  You know, share the love and all that jazz.  It's super simple to make and pretty healthy as long as you don't eat a whole bowl at a time like I do.  It never lasts very long in our house.  Even my kids love it.  

Let's start with our ingredients:

     Roma Tomatoes
     Avocados
     Green Onions
     Sour Cream
     Tabasco Sauce
     Salt



Start by slicing your avocados in half.  Ripe avocados will be more brown than green on the outside and have a slight give to them when you squeeze them but still somewhat firm.  If they are mushy then they are just about rotten.  Don't buy those.  



I'll show you a trick for removing the pit.  With some pressure and for lack of a better word, WHACK your knife into the pit and then twist.  It should slide right out.  Forgive the photography error - terrible picture but wanted you to see what I was talking about.  Just have good aim and don't whack off a finger.



And here's another trick - I score the avocado before scooping it out.



With a spoon, scoop out the yummy goodness into a bowl.  This will make mixing up the dip much easier.




Now dice up your green onions....



... and your tomatoes.




Add your onions and tomatoes to your bowl of diced up avocados.  



Now, I usually only add a tablespoon or two of sour cream to the mix.  I like the creaminess that the sour cream gives but I don't want to really taste the sour cream.  I want to taste the avocados.  But you can add as much or as little as you like.  Also, same with the tabasco sauce.  If you like to spice it up then go for it.  And salt to taste as well.  Mix well.




Grab those chips and start munching!



I hope you make it and love it!  Enjoy, y'all!

I'm guest posting over at Exposing the Drapes to My 20's today.  You can head over there now and grab my enchilada recipe or come back here later today.  I'll post it here as well so that I can link it to my recipe page.  Goes great with the guacamole!
