Friday's Favorites ~ Guacamole

This is my weakness. When I'm at the Piggly Wiggly, I'll walk by and give the avacados a squeeze just to see if there is any guacamole in the near future.

I make mine with fresh ingredients... a bit of lime juice, purple onion, cilantro, jalapenos and tomatoes. A pinch of salt if I need.

You know the secret to keeping your guacamole from turning brown is nestling the avocado seed in the mix. Honestly... It works! My Favorite way to fresh guacamole is in a Margarita glass . . . With that seed in the bottom of the glass.

Brilliant!


Now, Do y'all have a favorite today?
join in the linky party~

Oh that looks good. Something good and green for St. Patty's Day! Good idea about using the seed. I'll remember that.

Hugs,

I love this idea of serving your guacamole in a Margarita glass! Cute! I just picked up an avocado yesterday. Might have to pick up another one today and make some for tonight. Thanks for the idea!~

My husband and you should have a guacamole tasting. he makes (what I've heard) is a great guac. I don't eat guac-totally weird for a Texan. I don't know what it is-texture? color? My chips are happy with queso though!

Sandi, I'm the same way in the produce section . . . always eyeing the avocados for their readiness! Sadly, they were $2 each yesterday. ouch! I just love this maragarita glass presentation and will need to remember that the next time I make gwak! I'm all linked up to your party and I'd love to have you stop over to mine that is going on and add a great post. Roz
