It wasn’t until last summer I gave guacamole a try. I was one of those people who judge the food by this looks. It was green and I just knew that I wouldn’t like it. My husband was the same, but he gave it a try when he was at dinner with his co-workers. He loved it and came home and told me that we were wrong and I HAD to try it!

I had seen a recipe come up on one of the food bloggers I follow and we gave it a try. I love it! It’s amazing what you find out what you really like if you just taste it just once. After making it many times and adjusting the recipe to our liking we make it almost every time we have fajitas.

2 ripe avocados

1 ½ tablespoon lime juice

½ tsp seasoning mix
