Newbie Guacamole

Victoria Ross


Had never tried guacamole until recently. My mother made me try hers which was like a guacamole salsa, very delicious. But I wanted something smoother and read several recipes for guacamole. After getting the basics for making guacamole, I mixed together what I loved and this is perfect! So much flavor and very addictive!
