Growing up in Texas I have had my share of Mexican food, and well Tex-Mex, of course.
I mean if you are gunna live in Texas you kinda have to
like love Mexican food.
Well that and barbecue.
Mexican/Tex-Mex and Barbecue, the official foods of Texas.
Because of my
love obsession with Mexican food and because Cinco de Mayo is this Sunday, I thought having a second annual Mexican food themed week was in order! All this week I will be sharing some classic Mexican recipes that would be perfect for any Cinco de Mayo celebration, large or small.
First up, guacamole.
I love me some guacamole!
I could eat it as a meal all on its own, but I also love eating it as an appetizer with chips or using it as a condiment to top my tacos, burgers and burritos.
I like my guac chunky, full of onions and tomatoes. I actually shared this recipe some time ago, as part of another recipe, but thought it deserved pictures and a post all on its own. So here it is!
What is your favorite way to enjoy Guacamole?

Cut the avocados in half. Twist the halves in opposite directions and pull apart. Remove the pits and then scoop out the avocado flesh into a medium bowl. Mash the avocado with a large fork. Stir in the remaining ingredients. If not using immediately, cover with plastic wrap pressing the plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate.
