My (nearly) World Famous Guacamole

I. Love. Guacamole!

Guacamole night in my house is as much anticipated by my husband as my two children. It is a running joke in our house that whenever I am lacking creativity in my meal planning, I always choose some sort of taco or quesadilla. I think it is because I am always looking for a reason to eat guacamole. After all, I get a vegetarian burrito when I go to Chipotle just so I can get the free guacamole! (The guacamole is by far more important than the meat in my book).

The key to good guacamole is using fresh ingredients. Always, fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro. I repeat, always use fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro. Without these two ingredients, you have mediocre guac.

I prefer my guacamole a little chunky and with plenty of lime juice.
