Pure simple unadulterated guacamole.  I’ve read many guacamole recipes that call for a variety of ingredients such as garlic, tomato, onion and jalapenos.  But the truth is, I love, love, love avocados.  So much so that I don’t want to have my guacamole covered up by any flavors.  Just salt to enhance the flavor and some […]
