Guacamole

We love Mexican food in our house and avocados are a staple we keep regularly in our house.  I could easily fill up on chips, salsa, and guacamole!  Homemade guacamole is also the perfect addition to taco bowls, egg dishes, and even as a snack to serve up with veggies.  For picky kids or a quick sauce, I have also included my recipe for avocado sauce below.  I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
