Guacamole is a Mexican type avocado sauce used to compliment many Mexican foods. It is frequently used as a dip or as a topping to many dishes. Here is my favorite guacamole recipe passed down the family tree.
  • 2 large ripe avocados (Fuertes or Haas)
  • 2 T. salsa (see above)
  • 4 oz. grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Juice from 1 lemon or lime
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Carefully cut the avocado lengthwise down to the seed and pull the two halves apart by twisting slightly. Remove the seeds and save one of them. Scoop the avocado meat out from the peeling with a spoon and place the meat into a bowl. Discard the peelings. Mix the salsa and liquid ingredients into the avocado and mix well with a fork. Add the salt and pepper to taste and then mix in the grated cheese. Return one of the avocado seeds to the mixture to keep it from turning brown. Serve with chips or use in burritos and as a garnish to other Mexican dishes.
