Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: Guacamole for a Sunny Day

Guacamole for a Sunny Day

Write this down.  It's 80 degrees in April, in Iowa.  I won't mention that it is supposed to cool off tomorrow and be back in the upper 50's, because frankly I don't want to think about that.  Right now all I care about is getting this post written and getting my butt out on the deck to sit in the sunshine while both kiddos are napping.
Ah...

When it starts warming up, my mind shifts to summer meals.  And in the summer I think of dips.  Chip dips, fruit dips, honestly any dip that requires some form of food as the utensil to eat it with.

The other night we had tacos, and with three avocados on hand, there was only one thing to do with them of course. 

Make guacamole.

My recipe is simple, and I'm sure not authentic at all, but it works for us, as I usually have all of the ingredients on hand.  It rarely makes it through the entire meal, as it is one of the husbands all time favorites.  So much in fact that sometimes I only get a dollup.


Holy Moly Guacamole
3 avocados, pitted and scooped
1/2 c. salsa
1/2 c. sour cream
2 T. lemon or lime juice
1 t. salt
dash of hot sauce

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend to desired consistency.  We tend to like ours smooth, so I let mine go awhile.


It's looks like baby poop, but trust me it is good!

Keeping with the summer theme, yesterday I also made homemade ice cream sandwiches.  There are none left.  Stay tuned!

  5. I can't believe it was 80 degrees this early in the year! We've yet to break 70 here in the northeast.

    I like these quick whip up guacamoles. This guacamole must have been so good with the tacos!

  6. It is tricky thing for me to buy avocado. I buy them unripe and then wait them to ripe and sometimes forgot about it and they became too ripe. I have made guacamoles before I tried my hands on chicken fajitas.
