Holy Guacamole!

One of the few things K-man goes absolutely crazy over is guacamole. He will eat just an avocado half with pepper as a snack, he loves it so. So you can imagine when I make this...he makes all sorts of yummy sounds!

Here is your step by step, full recipe follows:

Half your two ripe avocados.

Take tip of knife and make criss cross marks through the avocado meat.

Use your spoons to scoop out the avocado. We like chunks rather some people prefer to mash their avocado.

Squeeze your lime juice onto the cubed avocado. Stir to coat.

Put one clove of garlic in your garlic press.

Slice down your green onions...

Then chop

Remove top of tomato and gouge out the tomato liquid and seeds. Chop into small chunks.

Season well with salt and pepper (not pictured in my palm here) Taste to make sure it's the way you like it.

Then place in your bowl...

We think unsalted tortilla chips are best for the saltiness of the chip doesn't ruin your dip flavors.

Awesome Guacamole

2 ripe avocados, cubed
2-3 green onions, chopped
1 clove of garlic, pressed in garlic press
2 Tbsp of lime juice
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Chop all ingredients, coat with lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Mix to combine.

Serving Suggestion:

Pork Tenderloin Wraps

We have a low carb tortilla here....with a light layer of light ranch dressing on it. Put some lettuce on it....

Put on your leftover slices of pork tenderloin on your lettuce.

Load on your homemade mouth is watering already....

Fold up and BITE! The smoky meat with garlic smoothness of the avocado, the crunch of the lettuce, the chewy tortilla...mmmmmmmmmmm. Try it....I guarantee you'll like it!

I load up a flour tortilla with a piece of poached fish, broccoli slaw and guacamole (similar recipe to yours) for a healthier fish taco alternative. Yum!
