Guacamole is one of my favorite Mexican condiments. It can be used as a dip for corn chips, to top tacos, on the side with burritos to name a few. This is my mom's recipe, not traditional but very tasty! An easy way to remove the pits from avocados is to cut them in half, twist apart and hit the seed with the blade of a chef's knife. Just a quick twist and the seed pops right out. Then just score the flesh of the avocado, turn it inside out and scrape into a bowl.


3 ripe avocados, peeled and pit removed
1 8 oz. carton sour cream
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp. garlic salt

Mash flesh of avocados along with sour cream, adding sour cream a spoon full at a time. The consistency should be thick, you may not need the entire carton of sour cream. Stir in lemon juice, cheese and garlic salt.

Never heard of making guac using cheese. I make it with the avo of course :) a chopped hot pepper(as you dare) some fresh lime or lemon juice, a teeny bit of minced onion,maybe a garlic clove and a little bit of cilantro. Alittle more Mexican:)
But yours definitely sounds interesting. I just would not kill my avo with cheese :) Terrific site by the way! Am enjoying all the reading.
