Guacamole

So recently on the same night that I made Homemade Enchiladas and Pico de Gallo, I also made Guacamole.  A Mexican fiesta, (OK, it was just a Tuesday night with the family), isn’t complete without a great guacamole.  To tell you the truth, I’ve never been much of a fan of guacamole served with my food at my favorite Mexican restaurant.  It’s just kind of bland.  Nothing special about it.  So when I found this recipe on a blog recently (sorry I can’t remember which one), I decided to take the plunge and buy my first avocado!  No looking back now.  This stuff is great and somewhat addicting (remember the 15 year old?  I didn’t make enough and didn’t get any leftovers Grr…).  Anyway, something I still want to try was an idea from the blog twopeasandtheirpod which was to make guacamole grilled cheese sandwiches.  That would be a whole new taste sensation to the ordinary grilled cheese!  Can’t wait to try those.  I just need to make enough guacamole or hide it better from “the boy!”
