Girl Food, Boy Food, just in time for Super Bowl Sunday!

Betza's Guacamole

Girl.........OK Chickies, when I say this is THE BEST guacamole EVER, I mean it. It is the way my previous and wonderful housekeeper from Mexico made it. Oh how I miss her....

I'm makin a BIG Batch and I may eat every bit of it all by myself! Just ask my friends. THE BEST guacamole EVER!!!

6 Avocados (of course taken out of the shell and the seed removed) I used the California avocados because the Florida ones weren't soft enough. (idn't that just irritating?)

Fresh Cilantro finely chopped

1 red (only red) onion finely chopped (really just use half)

Chopped by my nifty Williams-Sonoma chopper

3 cloves of fresh minced garlic
minced by my nifty Williams-Sonoma mincer

Smash up the avocados with your [clean] hands and mix it all up with your [clean] hands

About 3 limes squeezed

Add a dash of tabasco and chopped tomatoes (optional) (in season)

I like to eat my guacamole with Tostitos scoops

Oh man, I'm SO glad Mr. Wonderful dudn't like this stuff.

P.S. the garlic, limes and cilantro make this guacamole special. I have found that most mexican restaurants don't use enough of any of these.

Boy..........Junk Yard Rotel Dip:

1 large block of Velvetta cheese

2 cans of rotel
1 can of Hormel chili (no beans)

Heat cheese and rotel in a double boiler until melted. If you don't have a double boiler you may heat it in a medium size pot on low. DO not burn it or you will hate your gorgeous self.


Dump in the Hormel chili (looks gross dudn't it???)

Eat with Fritos - oh be still my hungry heart!!!

Guaranteed to make Mr. Wonderful kiss the ground I walk on.

  2. Well, I can honestly say your guacamole is the BEST I have ever tasted.....Please take a picture of Lynn kissing the ground you walk on....That is a sight I would like to see...!!! hahaha.....Rotel looks yummy too.just wish I could eat either one right now...
