As you may or may not know the Butcher and I are in Mexico. It is February after all. One thing we love in Mexico is the guacamole. We have been buying plenty down here. I made some yesterday and our friends Sheryl and Mary enjoyed it with us. They liked it and said they are inspired to make it when they get home. Avocados are good for the heart. It seems appropriate to share this on Valentines Day since this is a day for the ❤️!

Guacamole

2 avocados (should be soft to the touch)

1/2 sweet onion finely diced

1/2 jalapeño pepper (seeded) and finely chopped

Juice from 2 small limes (approximately 2to 3 teaspoons)

Salt to taste (1/2 teaspoon)

Light Tortilla Chips

Take a knife and cut around the edge of the avocados. Pull off the skin and remove the pit. Mash the avacados in a medium bowl with a fork. Mix in the onion and jalapeño. Season with salt. Squeeze the lime juice and mix well. You now know how to make Guacamole that will steal the show.

That’s all for now. Make sure to stop in and tell Andrew, Sarah, Lillian and Steve “Hi”! Adios Amigos! Until next time—From our Butcher Block to your Table!
