I've never met a guacamole I didn't like.
Until I tried this recipe. And now, no other guacamole can hold a candle to this one.
Yeah, it's that good. I mean really.
I first sampled it on our Memorial weekend lake excursion. The lovely hostess had found the recipe in her Better Homes and Gardens magazine!
Thank goodness for technology that scans and prints.
And really lovely hostesses that make copies and good food.
We had a BBQ to attend this weekend, and I knew exactly what to bring....

Just a warning....
You might eat the entire bowl by yourself.
Be prepared for an intervention. Or a fight - if someone tries to snatch the bowl from you.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
