Good Guacamole

Okay it goes without saying, I did NOT invent guacamole. I just think mine is pretty good.

2 ripe avocados
1 TBS lemon juice
¼ Herdez Salsa (or your favorite)
1tsp (or to taste) Greek seasoning. I know it is odd, but it is a good all purpose. If you don’t have Greek seasoning use fajita, otherwise salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Peel and pit avocado, and add lemon juice and salsa. With a fork mash together. Add seasoning to taste.

Great Guacamole

If you have time this is really good “fancied up” version of an old standard.

Peel and devain about 15 small shrimp. Cut into small pieces. Add, lime juice to cover, garlic, salt and pepper. Let sit for 3 hours or overnight. The lime juice should cook the shrimp. It should be pink. However for those week at heart, zap it in the microwave for a minute stirring once. Make the above recipe with the addition of the shrimp and about ¼ c. chopped cilantro.


P.S. if you save the pit and throw it into the guacamole when you are done preparing it keeps the avocado from turning brown.

Excellent.
Does it matter if I use salsa verde?
