Strawberry Guacamole

I love guacamole! I literally put that shit on everything- eggs, meat, fish, veggies... So I thought it would be appropriate to share my guac recipe to kick off this blog.  My recipes will be pretty to the point. I usually don't like to talk about a recipe for 3 pages. But, there's nothing like real, fresh homemade guac. The slop in containers will never compare. I must make this once a week. This recipe is awesome and the best guac ever. For me, the most important ingredient is fresh cilantro. Never get cilantro dried. Ever. I always have fresh cilantro on hand, it's great in marinades and tossed in salads.  
Serve this with some sweet potato chips or on anything at all! The secret to perfect sweet potato chips? A mandolin slicer. Slice those babies up real thin, toss in olive oil and sea salt, line on parchment and bake at 400 til the edges start to crisp, flipping halfway. I digress. Guac.... Secret ingredient? Strawberries! Phenom. Perfection. I love you. The perfect accompaniment to a perfect guac. But, if you're not into strawberry, just use chopped tomatoes for a more traditional guac. I like chunky guac, so I just use a fork to roughly mash it. If you like a smoother guac, use the food processor.  Here's another secret- leave one avocado pit in the guac to keep it from turning brown.

3 ripe avocados

1/4 cup loosely chopped cilantro
1/4 cup chopped red onion

Mash your avocados and add everything else, mixing until combined. Enjoy!
