What’s Cooking Wednesday: Guacamole

One of my very favorite snacks is tortilla chips and guacamole. Seriously. I cannot get enough. I call it a guilty pleasure, and my husband always points out that there’s nothing bad in guacamole. In fact, avocados are good for you. The tortilla chips though? Not so much. They balance each other out though, right?

Although I love guacamole, I can’t eat brands sold in stores. I don’t know what it is about it. I’m just weird. So, I make my own. It takes virtually no time at all (unless you’re like me and you suck at chopping). When we got back from our vacation, I was seriously craving some guac (probably because our brother-in-law made some for us at my in-laws’ cabin), so I whipped some up. It was so good. Now, I need to stop talking about it before I make my hubby drive out to the store (while we’re under a tornado watch) to get some avocados!

4 avocados
1 onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
Jalapenos (the amount will vary on how spicy you want your guac)
Garlic salt to taste
Red pepper flakes to taste
Black pepper to taste

Scoop avocados out of their shells and mash in a bowl. Add onion, garlic and spices, and mix together. Chill.

    The fiber will give you a fuller feeling and also help your digestion.
    Just imagine not cleaning your house for 5-10 years.
    Your body makes an extremely important hormone called
    melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH).
