Hearty Guacamole!

Lee and I just loved guacamole, and avocado is something that is good for you! It has the "good fats" and has fiber, too. Avocados are good for your heart! Here is a link for some fun facts from the California Avocado Commission:

I made a snack of guacamole and water crackers using some nice ripe avocados we got fresh from a friend's backyard tree. They are the same type of avocados we got in our SLO Veg box a few weeks ago, the Bacon variety. The fruit inside was green, soft and unblemished. I just scooped it out into a bowl and mashed it with a fork, then added some coarse sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, granulated garlic, chopped cherry tomatoes from SLO Veg, and a few drops of Tabasco sauce. I also mixed in a large tablespoon full of sour cream just to make it a little creamier. That and a squeeze of lime juice is all you need to make a yummy snack.
