I think I ‘m a pretty good cook and over the years I have passed on my culinary hints and tips to daughter Katy. Even though we use the same recipes there are some things that she makes better than me! Her guacamole is outstanding. I’ve watched her make it and I think I do the same things she does but hands down, hers is always better than mine. Go figure. Maybe it’s because food that someone else makes for you, always tastes better. Whatever the reason I plan on letting her continue to make guacamole for me every chance I get.
Katy’s Best Guacamole
- 4 large ripe Hass Avocados – peeled-mashed with a fork
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
- 1/4 cup minced red onion
- 2 Tablespoons sour cream
- 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice or more to taste
- 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
- 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- A few shakes of Adobo seasoning (a traditional Latin blend of salt, garlic, pepper and oregano – go lightly as it is salty)
Mix, chill and enjoy!

Guacamole isn’t complete without some chips to dip in it but you don’t have to break the calorie bank to achieve having a little crunch. You can make your own in a matter of minutes that are guiltless yet uber crunchy and delicious! Here is the recipe for Baked Tortilla Chips.
These Baked Flat Bread Chips with California Lavash make a generous serving for just 120 calories! If you don’t have California Lavash substitute your favorite flat bread.
Guacamole goes well with so many different dishes, check out my favorite Mexican/Southwest recipes and choose a new one to try.
I’ve been on a Mexican food kick lately!
Well we have had a little wedding drama this week as the bridal store lost the dress for the maid of honor. She bought it out of state where she was doing her graduate studies and it was suppose to be shipped to our house. Instead it showed up at their store and when they called to tell her it was in, she reminded them that she no longer lived there and they needed to ship it to the brides’s house. When we never received it she called them again and they said they had sent it to the billing address – her old apartment! How did they do that when she gave them our address and told them to ship it here? They were going to trace it through UPS but Lisa took it upon herself to call a friend and ask him to go to the apartment complex and ask around. Sure enough he found it! Talk about a sigh of relief – this was great news. I guess you can’t get by without a little drama tossed in just to keep things exciting. I could use a little less of this kind of excitement.
I had a little down time this afternoon as the window washers are here and I have to keep out of their way so I decided to try and get a post written. I am set up in my laundry room – it’s the only place (except for a water closet) with no windows! Short and sweet is all you get this week!
