I have been trying to eat an avocado a day. So today, I decided to have my avocado as Guacamole! Super fresh ingredients make all the difference. My addition of just a touch of sour cream makes it so fluffy!

There are so many health benefits to eating avocados. For me I am trying to lower my A1c. So with increased cardio, and adding an avocado a day, I’m hopeful that in three months, I will!

You want to be sure that your avocados are ripe for this recipe. You can place in a paper bag overnight if you need to hurry up the ripening! You can use this guacamole as a dip, in tacos, or on top of your burger. For something a bit out of the box, try my Tostones with Blackened Shrimp and Guacamole. The many possible ways to use and enjoy guacamole are endless!

Halve the avocados. Spoon out the insides into a bowl. Mash with a fork. Season with kosher salt and black pepper.

Add in the tomato, red onion, garlic, Tabasco, and cilantro.

Add in the sour cream and lime juice.

Gently mix all of the ingredients. Taste. You may need to add a touch more lime juice and/or kosher salt. Serve the guacamole immediately, or cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge! ENJOY! Love my serving bowl? Click here to get one similar from Arte Legno!
