That’s my absolute favorite way to eat it.


And the kids love it too. I had to quickly stash the rest of the guacamole away before they made it through the whole bowl.


This guacamole is the one that is going to make your next game day or snack time a success. Eat with tortilla corn chips or your favorite vegetables.
