California Guacamole



The beauty of a good guacamole is in it’s simplicity…choosing minimal ingredients that highlight the delicacy of the avocado, while still adding a little punch like all Mexican food must have.

One day when I had no lemon, I tried it with the juice of an orange instead and discovered an accidental gourmet delight.

Though I love it plain with a crisped tortilla (learn to do that in your oven here)…I also love love love it with tlayudas!
