    • Tami's Special Burn Your Lips Off Guacamole

      This is a simple tried and true guacamole recipe that takes just a couple minutes in the blender to prepare and is a requested favorite for sporting events and tailgating parties!

      (Recipe submitted by Budget101 member: Tami Bartlett)

      2 avocados- peeled, seeded, and chopped
      2 glops mayo
      ~1T chopped onion
      splash of lemon juice
      as much garlic as you can stand

      Whiz it up in the blender use a rubber spatula to CAREFULLY encourage "turnover" in the blender.

      When it's the consistency of mayo, remove the glass, unscrew the bottom over a bowl, and use your spatula to scrape remains into bowl. this way saves guac--- keeps it from sticking to the sides all the way up to the top. I use the guacamole left on the blade for "sampling"- using a white corn tortilla chip, NO FINGERS.

      When storing guacamole, put saran wrap on it and make sure there's NO AIR- have the wrap touching the surface of the guac on the whole top. This keeps it from going brown and getting a film on it.
      (Thank You Tami!!!)
