I like to take some prepared products and add my own touches. This is my "kicked up" version of a store-bought guacamole and it seems to be popular with my friends and family. I am asked to bring this anytime there is an occasion. These internet pictures show you how semi-chunky this guacamole is. I will post pictures of mine the next time I make this.
