    Cooking at the Cottage's Note:

    While shopping this summer, my daugter came to me with a package of marked down avocados. "Can we make Guacamole, Please?" Explaining that I did not have a recipe, she said not to worry, she made it once at her friend's house. Since my girlfriend and her husband were coming up the next day, and she knew how to make it I said fine and we picked them up. This is what we ended up with. We have made it a couple of times since and it always vanished pretty quick. It is great for the cottage or camping as it requires no more equipment that a bowl, spoon and knife. The flavours might blend together more if you chill it before serving, but they are usually digging into it while I am still making it.

      This was great tasting! It had just the right amount of everything in it. This didn't last long in the house, it was gone before I knew it. I really loved the story behind this Guacamole that you wrote about. Thanks Cooking at the Cottage....

      This is a great Guac recipe. I made and served it it in my Mortar and Pestle. I used 1 fresh halapeno (seeded)and a little extra cilantro, just cause we love it! I served this with chef Lennie's Chilli.

      Feeling lazy, I popped everything into the food processor, but left it rough. Super fast, super easy. No jalapenos in France, so I used a kind of chunky salsa to give it a little kick. I especially liked the lime juice in there. We will have it with some chips tonight, maybe, if there are leftovers, it would be good on a taco. Thanks!
