Have you noticed the lack of avocado in my recipes? That’s because I hate them…well…stay tuned to see if that’s changed with this recipe. I live in AZ and there is no lack of avocados, guacamole, and Mexican food. However, John loves Loves LOVES guacamole and avocados. His love, rather my hatred, has been the source of many jokes by family and friends for years.
Last week at Camp Blogaway, I met Mimi Avocado. She is the sweetest lady and I had a chance to chat with her for a little while at camp. She has a blog and as her name suggests…she has an avocado ranch in Southern CA. I can’t wait to go visit her, she’s only a 6 hour drive from me!!!! Of course, the conversation quickly turned to my hatred of avocados and she said that maybe I just hadn’t had a good one. Lucky for me, she brought a huge basket of avocados to camp (thanks to CA Avocados Direct). I reluctantly took several and she promised that they would be perfectly ripe by the end of the week.

So, John was super excited that I had promised to actually do something with the avocados. And I agreed to make him some guacamole. Sigh…what was I thinking. I’ve been stressing over it all week. I started thinking about it a lot….and thought IF I like guacamole what would I want in it?
John, my taste tester, fell in love with me again after tasting my new recipe…it had been too long since I made those fabulous cupcakes. LOL! He gave me the eye and said this probably the best guacamole he had ever tasted. SHOCKING! I’ve never met an avocado or guacamole recipe that I liked nor had I ever made it. I promise this wasn’t the “nice husband” face…but the real HOLY COW, “that’s awesome” face!
So, I bet you are wondering what I thought?!?!?
Well…..I LOVED IT!!!!!
