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!

ingredients for guacamole

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!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
