Garlic and lime guacamole, a delicious and easy guacamole recipe that comes together in just one hour!!

Another Tyler Florence recipe coming at ya. I adapted this guacamole recipe from Tyler Florence when I was in pursuit of a cheaper alternative to the store brand Wholly guacamole. It is one of my favorites but I was tired of paying so much for it when I knew I can make it cheaper for myself.

I could live on guacamole. Besides pizza, it really is the perfect food. Delicious, healthy, and versatile. You can eat it with chips or have it on top of toast. Or serve it with my slow roasted chicken tacos!  read more

As a trivia guru, I am ashamed I didn’t know what a Bacon number is!! A Bacon number is the number of connections between a certain actor and Kevin Bacon in the trivia game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Don’t ask how my brain gets on these tangents. I was thinking of the connection between the two main characters on Better Call Saul and Bob’s Burgers which sent me down an internet loophole. Don’t judge. I already judge myself enough. read more
