Penny's Passion: Guacamole -- Yes Please!

Guacamole -- Yes Please!

This past weekend on my epic floating trip (you can read about it HERE), my good friend TW whipped up a batch of his famous guacamole.  Anytime this group of friends get together, having TW's guacamole is on everyone's wish list.  He didn't let us down!

While he was working his magic, I decided to click a few pictures and share his recipe on my blog so all you good people could try it too.  If you're a big fan of this green stuff like I am, you must give this a try!

Here's What You Need

4 or 5 avocados
1 tomato
2 limes
1 sweet onion
small container of sour cream
small jar of your favorite salsa (one without mangos, corn or beans)

Here's What You Do
First thing - get ready to do some chopping.  Cut up the avocados, tomato, and onion and place all the pieces in a large bowl.   Please forgive the lack of beauty of my bowl.  Remember -- we were making this in our cabin in the woods and this was the prettiest bowl we could find in the cabinets.

Pour in about 3/4 the jar of salsa. 

Rub the limes on the counter to loosen up the juices, cut, and squeeze over the bowl.

Add in the sour cream.  Sprinkle with cumin and salt.  Mix up really well.

Serve with your favorite chips!

So, see that empty bowl there on the right?  The recipe is so good!  We scarfed it down like it was the only food we had to eat all weekend long.  Delish!!
