Awhile ago, we were at someone's house and they brought out guacamole. They were very proud of this guacamole. They were a tiny bit pushy about the guacamole. And they seemed somewhat offended when I said I didn't like guacamole. It was....uncomfortable. So after staring it down for awhile, I went for it.
Sort of. I took the smallest amount possible that could still make it appear as though I were trying it.
I tasted it. And then realized that I was being a giant sissy and that I couldn't validly consider that tiny amount as "trying it".
So I tried again.
And....other than the avocado, I really liked it. And I liked it enough that the avocado wasn't that big of a deal. It was like a creamy version of salsa.
I put off writing this post for awhile because, while I enjoyed the guacamole, I think I could do better if I made it at home. I was going to wait until I tried it out myself before I wrote about it, but I haven't had the chance to do that yet and I wanted to write something up for the blog. If I made the guacamole, I would definitely want more...stuff in it. I would like it to be spicier. However, not being a gaucamole connoisseur I am not entirely certain that if I did everything I wanted to the guacamole, this it would still be considered guacamole anymore rather than just salsa with some avocado in it.
So I must ask readers, do you have a good guacamole recipe? At what point does guacamole stop being guacamole and instead becomes some other type of chip dip? How many times do I have to type guacamole in this post before I spell it correctly the first time? These are the type of questions that keep me up at night....
