Friday Potluck Party!!!
Grab the code for the Potluck Friday button
Please join the party by entering your favorite post (from your blog) from the past week — arts & crafts, photography, ideas and, of course, recipes are all welcome.

I can’t wait to see your posts.

Also, at this time, I want to give my new blog friend Michelle @ Fit Foodista a shout out. Over the last few weeks, we’ve become friends and she’s been posting dedicated blog posts to my Friday Potlucks. Please please please be sure to check out her blog (as well as blogs from the other potluckers!)

This week I’m bringing Heavenly Guacamole to the potluck. One of my favorite dishes – very tasty, very easy, and… very tasty. Wait, I already said that. I say that a lot. Tasty. Tasty. Tasty.
Enough with the broken record. It’s a favorite at parties and at home.
Its also made from all fresh ingredients and is pretty darned good for you with no preservatives. Until you add the chips or the burger — whatever you plan to eat with it.
I’ve made this into a small batch, but you can easily make much larger batches.
Heavenly Guacamole
2 avocados (set pits aside)
1 tomato
1 green onion
3-4 stems cilantro
1/2 jalapeno
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp lime juice (or lemon juice)
Dice all solid ingredients and mash together. Mash less if you want a less chunky guac. I like it chunky because I like to see what I’m eating. Add the lime juice to keep from browning. I like to place the pits in also to keep from browning and to add visual interest.
Eat! Serve with tortilla chips. (Or add to a burger, or many other uses.) If you prefer a little less onion or garlic, feel free to leave either out; on the flip side, if you prefer more, then by all means…!

  1. Okay Erin! I’ve been saving a fabulous recipe for your potluck! I’ll have it up tonight or tomorrow then LinkY Here I come! Your guac looks delish – if only I could eat avocado! Can you believe I’m allergic to them? And they are one of my favorites. Oh well. I might make this anyway for a party I’m going to this weekend.

  2. Looking forward to it Lindsey! Bummer about avocados – they are one of my favorites too. Hope the party goes well!

  7. Yummy! We just love guacamole Erin! 🙂

  8. Debbie says:

    Yummy, I could eat that entire bowl of guac….I make it, but do not add in as much as you do…I will have to try it your way. Coming over from Vanessas.

  9. Vanessa says:

    Hi Erin! Thanks so much for joining the party again this week! I am the only avocado lover in my house but I could seriously eat all of that just on my own…maybe late at night when no one could see me! 🙂
    P.S. I LOVE your new header! It’s new right? 🙂

  10. Hi Vanessa, thanks for hosting again! And yes, it’s new; I am striving a little more each week to make my blog look just a smidge more professional. There will be a little post on exactly why after tomorrow! 🙂


  11. @everyone so far, thanks for all of your wonderful comments and compliments – this really is the best guac I’ve come across, and the best part is that I know exactly what’s in it! 🙂

  12. Indie.Tea says:

    I love guacamole, and its just about dinner time…and your gorgeously green picture is making me very, very hungry!

  16. Jacqueline says:

    Love the lime in it anytime. I could eat it all by myself, but you know they say it is healthy for you. Yum.

  17. Sad to say, but I did a pretty good job of eating most of it all on my own. 🙂 Oh well.

  18. Donna says:

    hahahaha…ok Erin, I took the plunge and entered your pot luck;) Of course, since I’m new to this: I messed up and used the wrong picture:) Now it looks like me throwing leaves is “simple to fabulous” 🙂 hahahahah…oh well, it’s kinda funny anyways:) THANKS!
