Guacamole Recipe

February 6, 2013 in Recipes by Joe

I’d like to think a person could live on guacamole alone. I’d at least be up for trying it.

Growing up I use to look at this pasty looking slop on people’s plates and thought it was the most revolting looking “food” ever. It wasn’t until I started to appreciate the different foods available to me besides the good ole meat and potatoes I grew up on that I decided to try my luck with this strange green stuff. All I need to say is after that first bite I felt I’ve been betrayed my whole life! This stuff is pure heaven!

I’d like to think its a pretty healthy snack as well. This way I don’t feel so bad when I look down at my bowl and realize I just ate half the batch.

If you try this recipe let me know what you think.
