Last weekend I took a very last minute trip and by last minute, I mean I told Chris I wanted to see my Aunt and an hour later I was out the door. By.Myself.Yeah! to Boise, ID. It was one of the things I really wanted to do during our stay here and since we aren't going to be here much longer, I seized the moment. I've been to Idaho once before when I was a teenager and on our way home from that trip, we were in a nasty car accident (read: the car rolled 3x off the road and down a hill.) I'd kind of forgotten about it until I was driving up there on Sunday. At this point, I'm sure you are wondering what guacamole & car accidents have to do with each other. Just wait for it (they have nothing to do with eachother.) So I made it to my Aunt & Uncles house about 5 1/2 hours later. We stayed up till 3 a.m. looking at all the "nailed it" cooking disaters and cried from laughing so hard. Anyway, the next night she made tacos for dinner. In our 14 years of marriage, I think I've made tacos once and I'm pretty sure they were fish tacos. There have been no tacos since. Here's the deal- everyone makes tacos for dinner- I have friends who make tacos once a week. Why have I not jumped on the taco train? Am I a deep-down taco hater (no). I have nothing against tacos. They are so easy and even easier to make kid friendly. What's my prob? Did living in Los Angeles for 7 years teach me nothing? My point is, I came home on Tuesday and have made chicken taco's twice. I know, right? Apparently someone has jumped on the taco train and it has left the station! Anyway, I was also making a second batch of guacamole tonight, doubling the recipe this time because there just wasn't nearly enough last time. If you like guac, you should try this. It's pretty delicious and this makes a good amount.
4 ripe avocados, roughly chopped
1/2 large onion, diced
1/2 large tomato (I love beefsteak), diced
1/2 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
Juice from 1-2 limes (we use 2 but that might be too limey for you)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
dash of pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, mashing up the avocados while you stir. Get into your belly immediately.
