I've learned not to put it in the Cuisinart, because it is better if it has some chunks in it. In Mexico, they use a lava rock mortar and pestle arrangement called a molcajete, but I don't have one yet. I just combine (don't really measure) ripe chunks of avocado, tomato diced very fine, garlic, onion, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice, some salt....mush it around really good. And if I am feeling really ambitious and it isn't too hot, I'll fry up my own chips like they do in the restaurants here. Get some really thin corn tortillas, cut them in quarters or eighths and fry them in oil until they are crisp...drain on paper towels and salt them. Oh yum.

Who needs chips? I could eat the guacamole with a spoon.

Come on over, sc! I buy my guac from our tiny Country Store in town. It is soooo good, I don't even try to make my own! It's frozen and has no label on it...I'm not sure where it comes from. It is just this side of too hot! I don't buy it too often - 'cause I can eat the whole thing!

Paul just called and is on his way home... he wants eggs and bacon for dinner. So, being the good wife that I am frying bacon. Yummy. I'm sure I'll have a bite or two before he gets home.
