My Guacamole

While at the grocery store this afternoon I saw that avocados were on sale so picked one up. I decided that tonight I would made some guacamole the way that I like it. I also still had some sour cream that I needed to use so it was a good plan.

Guacamole, avocado, pepper, garlic salt, sour cream, salsa, olive oilI guess that I have been watching too many cooking shows as I decided that I needed to put together my mise en place. For my guacamole I need sour cream, garlic salt, olive oil, fresh ground pepper, salsa and an avocado.

There is some debate as to whether guacamole should include sour cream, but there are some regions in Mexico that do. Plus, this is guacamole the way I like it and I include it.

Plus, no fresh tomatoes for me. This is guacamole the way I like it.

At this point I may add a bit more pepper or garlic salt. Also, if I am not going to use all of it in one sitting I may add some lemon juice.

Since this was just a medium sized avocado I ate it all while watching a re-run of the Diamond League track meet in Shanghai. I then went out and took a four mile walk 🙂

What do you like in your guacamole?
