Annie had to take a Mexican Dish and recipe to her Spanish class today for Cinco de Mayo. I didn't have recipe for guacamole as I just usually throw it together adding this and that. I found this yummy version over at Your Homebased Mom. It was quick and easy. I actually threw it together this morning before Annie went to school. I even had a few teachers email me and ask me for the recipe.


2-3 avocados, depending on size. Peel, pit and mash

Juice of 1 lime ( I did a half)

1/2 c diced onion

3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped

2 tomatoes, diced (I cored and only used 2 roma size tomatoes)

1 tsp minced garlic

1 pinch cayenne

1 tsp salt

In bowl, use a fork to mash together the avocados. Add in the lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour or serve immediately.
