Cinco de Mayo is coming up and guacamole is expected! We are sharing a favorite family recipe so you can share it with your family and friends. Homemade guacamole is the yummiest and most satisfying condiment. Ever. It is usually the first food item to disappear and have the bottom of the bowl licked clean. (Or maybe that’s just when I’m there?) This recipe is a favorite because of it’s simplicity and exceptional taste. It can be freshly prepared and ready to devour in less than 10 minutes! Serve up with some sliced veggies, chips, or with your favorite Mexican fare.
We load up on hass and other varieties of avocados at our local farmers market for guacamole, smoothies, wraps, and salads. Avocados are full of healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. What an incredible and perfect fruit to nourish and strengthen the body! How do you enjoy your avocados?
