National Guacamole Day!

September 16, 2011 is
National Guacamole Day

Today is National Guacamole Day! We all know and love guacamole as a party snack, but there's more to guacamole than meets the eye. Guacamole is made from avocados, which are packed with more than twenty vitamins, contain "good fats" that reduce cholesterol, can help fight cancer, and can be used as a substitute for butter or shortening in baking.You can purchase pre-made guacamole at your local supermarket or buy some ripe avocados to make your own. Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July, Super Bowl Sunday, and Easter each account for approximately five percent of annual avocado sales. Have no fear, avocado trees produce up to 400 fruits a year so there should be plenty to go around.

Here's my trusty Guacamole Recipe in case you missed it the first time!
 Happy National Guacamole Day!


WY-OLLY  GUACAMOLE                                                        
3/4 cup  Chopped onions
3/4 cup Diced Tomatoes
1/2-1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1 T Mayonnaise
Dash Garlic Powder
Dash Cumin
Dash Salt
Dash Pepper

Tabasco to taste (approx.7-8 drops)
3-4 Avocados (I like Haas myself)
Mash Avocados to creamy or kind of lumpy whatever consistency you like. Mix in all ingredients. Chill for about 2-4 hours to settle ingredients. (but I usually can't wait, I eat it immediately!) Serve that day for it doesn't keep to well.

 Happy National Guacamole Day!
