guacHomemade guacamole is delicious, nutritious, and easy. Hmm, I am thinking this sounds a bit familiar as I say this about so many of my recipes. True for other recipes, true for this one too. Guacamole is served with pita or tortilla chips. Well most of the time that is true. Try mixing up guacamole and filling boiled eggs for a new twist on deviled eggs. Purchase a slaw-vegetable mix at your market and use guacamole for your dressing.  This is great with any type of taco, or as a side. People will be impressed with your inventiveness, as well as your good food!
