Holy Moly Guacamole

Hmm what could this be?
Green mush? Nope. Well, yes, but so much more than that! 

Guacamole! Do you see it now?

I have been waiting. And waiting. And waiting for avocados to go on sale. Guess what? They’re still not on sale. So I gave into peer avocado pressure and bought the dang thing anyway. 
You can’t have guacamole without tortilla chips. So I saved on buying those and made my own with tortillas I already had at home.  
I’ve already talked about my love for salsa, but truthfully chips combined with any dip makes my heart skip a beat. Now, salsa will always be my fave because it’s so low in calories. But guacamole packs the health benefits too.
This dip takes less than ten minutes to throw together. When you run out of tortilla chips too quickly (like we always do), spread some guac on a sandwich or wrap.
