Yummy-Fresh Guacamole

Yeah, this is an extension of the "Yummy-Fresh Salsa" recipe I just posted! What's Mexican food without guacamole, anyway!?!

Whenever my wife is in a grumpy mood, I just make her some guacamole. It doesn't fix everything, but at least you get Yummy Guacamole!!

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 perfectly-ripe avocados
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 orange wedge
  • 1-2 Tbs sour cream
  • 1-2 Tbs "Yummy-Fresh Salsa"
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 1 pinch black pepper, to taste

Preparation:

Remove the seeds from the avocado and place the "meat" of the avocado in a mixing bowl. Be sure to take a spoon and clean out all of the extra "dark-green" stuff that tends to stick to the skin--that literally is the best part! Toss the sour cream and salsa into the mixing bowl. Take a knife and fork and start repeating "cuts" across the guacamole. I prefer to "cut" instead of "mash" because it gives little avocado "bites" instead of avocado "mush" ... you figure it out.

Add the spices, sour cream, and the juice from the lime and orange wedge (yes, I said orange!). Fold the ingredients together and enjoy with chips or whatever!
