Cinco de Mayo

I cannot deny the beautiful buttery taste of the avocado! I love it! I wonder if in Greek mythology, the avocado was the fruit of the gods? Well if not, it should have been, but I digress. When we lived in Guadalajara, we ate at least 1 avocado per day. It was heavenly. Obviously our family doesn't pay any heed to the health related rumors spread by other vegetables. Clearly they are just jealous. So, in Honor of Cinco de Mayo and the avocado, I'm posting a fabulous & simple guacamole recipe that I found on
  • 3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)
I love the pinch of cayenne!

I agree. Avacados are heavenly and I refuse to feel guilty for eating a whole one. I prefer to remove the pit, fill the hole with ketchup and eat the whole thing with a spoon. DE-lish.
