Mamacita’s Guacamole

Prep Work

In honor of Sawyer’s birthday today, I’m blogging his favorite thing… Mommy’s Guacamole!! It’s not necessarily authentic, but it is de-lish and I’ve received many a compliment over the years when friends come over for taco night.

What You’ll Need

3 Lrg Ripe Avocados

2 Tbls of Sour Cream (I use Lite)

2 Tomatoes (diced)

Lemon Juice (1/2 a lemon)

Garlic Salt (yep, we Okies put it in everything) – to taste

Chili Powder (the Secret ingredient) – to taste

Score!

Slice Avocados in half and remove the seed. Use a knife to score a diamond pattern into the avocado and scoop it into your bowl. FLASHBACK: When I was 16 I worked my way through Junior year at a deli and my boss was OBSESSED with not throwing a way even a speck of avocado because they’re so expensive. Thus, I became really good and scraping out every last morsel. Thus the avocado spread at that deli became known as “Avocado Gold” because it was so sacred.

Get to Mashin'

Use a fork to mash up all the avocado pieces. Add in sour cream, lemon juice, and tomatoes and blend well. Add in garlic salt and chili powder to taste, blend well. *PS – If you’re making this in advance, leave an avocado seed in the guacamole (at the bottom of the bowl) and it will keep the guacamole from browning.

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
