Guacamole


Guacamole is so easy to make.  First, when you a select an avocado, select one that is slightly soft, when you squeeze it. If it is hard like a rock, it is not ripe and you will not be able to mash it into guacamole.

First, cut Avocado in half length wise.  Pull apart.  Remove skin by carefully peeling it away, using a spoon to scoop out the avocado, or turn the 1/2 upside down over a bowl and squeezing the outside skin.  If you use the squeeze method, it usually falls out of the skin into the bowl and you are left with the skin in your hand.  Remove the seed in the other half and repeat.  You can put the seed to the side and place it in the guacamole later to keep it fresher.  I usually toss ours, because we never have any leftovers.
Mash the avocado using a potato masher.
Mash the avocado until it is creamy.
Add 1 tablespoon of sour cream and 1 tablespoon of salsa to the avocado.
Mix in the salsa and sour cream and enjoy with chips or your favorite Mexican dish.  You can add additional salsa, if you want a spicier guacamole.
