Recipe by ktanne13

I got this recipe from "The Detroit Free Press". I friend gave me the recipe and made it over the weekend. He gave me a taste this morning; it was sooooo delicious. I had to submit it for safe keeping. It will be my new guacamole recipe, since I've never exactly followed a recipe for guac. Yummy!!
