Guacamole

Easy homemade guacamole

Healthy and Delicious Guacamole….Just 4 ingredients for this tasty combination.

Guacamole

There’s nothing better than homemade guacamole!  It is delicious, tasty, and healthy too!  How often can you match that combination?

Rod’s cousin grows avocados.  Every once in a while, he sends us a large box full of avocados!  It so exciting to receive a great big box full of these green fruits!  There’s only one problem…they all tend to ripen at the same time!  As much as I love avocados, I have a tough time consuming 30 plus avos in just a couple of days!  Homemade Guacamole

On a whim one year, I made bunches and bunches of guacamole and froze it in small containers.  I thought, “Well, if it works, it’s worth it, and if it doesn’t I’ll know next time.”  I froze it in 1 cup sized plastic containers.  Before putting the lid on, I placed a piece of plastic wrap right on the surface.

A few weeks later, I pulled one out in the morning for dinner…..success!  It was awesome!  Sometimes there is a bit of brownish liquid on the top.  Just pour it off and stir guacamole before serving.  Send me some more avocados, dear cousin!

Guacamole

My favorite way to eat guacamole is just with tortilla chips.  But I also love to eat it with burritos, tacos, or in guacamole quesadillas!

      Yes, but the avocado delivery only happens at very random and rare moments! What I need is to schedule a regular deliver!!!

    I love guacamole! It’s the best. And did you read in the paper how Chipotle has threatened that they won’t be making it any more…..too expensive to get all the organic ingredients! So now I have to make my own, not that that’s the worst thing in the world. Happy Cinco De Mayo, time to get my party hat out of the basement =) Like the red onion in here.

      That will be a bummer for Chipotle’s. As much as I like making my own, it’s always nice to get it when I eat out!
