GUACAMOLE - LAUREN KELPHappy Monday, y’sll! Constance here and I’m not sure how your month is going so far, but if it’s anything like mine, it’s been a bit of a scramble. A good scramble and a fun scramble, but a scramble at that. July always catches me off guard–so many parties and family get togethers at the beginning of the month, and I was a little overwhelmed with what to bring where and how much for how many.

So what did I learn from the mayhem? Two things: I’m a firm believer in focusing on your strengths and……everyone loves guacamole. The trick for me was finding the perfect little twist, and thanks to a patient husband who loves taste testing and several taco themed gatherings, I think we found a good one!

Another bonus with this one: all of the ingredients are really ‘to taste’, so make it your own. Like more of a kick? Amp up the jalapeño. More of a sweet kind of gal? Add more pomegranate seeds. Our biggest piece of advice though? You can never have to much lime.
