Holy Guacamole!

I got this recipe from an old Marlboro Country Cook book I got for free for sending in so many cigarette wrappers. No, I don't smoke anymore, haven't in about 12 years, but I still love this cookbook and this recipe in particular.

Yesterday, my neighbor whom I hardly a matter of fact I don't even know their names, blessed us with a huge bag of avocados. So guess what I'm making today?

Of course this is great with chips, but it is also a great topping for your veggie burger or other burger of choice.

Cowboy Guacamole
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe avocados
2 tbs minced onion
1 tbsp lemon juice
1-2 tbsp finely chopped green chili pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce(there's a great veggie one on the market!)
4 drops Tabasco sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large ripe tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
combine avocado, onion, lemon juice, chili peppers, salt, Worcestershire, Tabasco sauce and garlic. Cook tomato in a dry skillet until moisture is absorbed and tomato pieces turn light brown; cool before adding to avocado mixture. Enjoy!

My in-laws just came back from Miami this last weekend and they brought home some home grown avocados, and man are they so different from anything in the store.

The power of picking and eating something when it is truly ripe.
