Since we have already established that I really think Mexican food should just have it’s own food group, I thought I would share my favorite recipe for Homemade Guacamole!  This stuff is beyond delicious.  My hubby is usually in charge of making this because I just think his tastes awesome.  Not to mention, I love watching that sexy man in the kitchen.  😉  You need to go and get all the ingredients to make this soon.  Like VERY VERY soon!  You can then come back and thank me!  Believe me, you will.  Yum!
