Best Ever Guacamole Recipe: Popular Party Appetizer

This Guacamole recipe was the hit of several Christmas parties this year. 

I love anything that has avocados as an ingredient.  They are so rich and creamy and good for you too, in moderation. 

Guacamole is such a popular party food, there is even a day devoted to it – National Guacamole Day on September 16.

Start by mashing the avocados. Then mix in the lime juice (this will add flavor and keep the avocados from turning brown.)
