Cooking / Guacamole

11 Dec

Guacamole has become a favorite in my house recently. I’ve made my husband a guac convert! He’s still not keen about avocados but guac seems to be a completely different story. 🙂

Today, I’m going to share my guacamole recipe with you! I wasn’t very good at getting the right balance of ingredients until a few months ago (maybe that’s why he didn’t like it). 🙂 We visited Plaza Azteca, an amazing Mexican restaurant, and watched them make the guac table side.  I have now learned all their secrets!
