I figured I ought to post a recipe for guacamole since it goes well with basically any Mexican dish that involves tortillas (including the potato enchiladas). I always just eye my measurements, but I'll try to give you some guidelines:

2 ripe Hass avocados, peeled, seeded and mashed
1/2 red onion, sliced and diced
1/2 ripe tomato, seeded and chopped
about a tablespoon of lime juice (fresh is preferred)
a handful (about a 1/4 cup) chopped fresh cilantro
a dash each of salt, pepper, garlic powder (this should be adjusted to taste)

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. If you would like to add some heat, add a bit of chopped fresh jalapeno. Make sure your red onion is fresh, not too old. An old onion is an angry onion and it can overpower the other flavors.


  1. Yay! Amy's famous guacamole, now I can try and make it. Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. Veggie loaf and soy gravy; now THAT's what I'm craving!!!!
