Using basil give this a refreshing flavor, great as a dip or on top of eggs, burritos, quesadillas, and lots of other vegetables! Adapted from BH&G magazine.

A very tasty alternative to traditional guac. The basil added a distinct refreshing quality to it that my fiance and I both enjoyed (and we REALLY love guacamole). The only change I made was using garlic salt instead of table salt, but that's because we love garlic in our guac anyway. We did miss having the cumin one usually finds in guacamole, however. I think that if I found myself with an overabundance of basil, this would be a nice use for it. I might just include the cumin next time, and a bit more garlic.
