Whenever I make Mexican food, I love to make guacamole.  I can eat guacamole and chips as a snack or a meal.  I like straight up guacamole.  I do not need any fancy ingredients or twist, just good ole guacamole.


4 avacadoes, mashed

1/2 red onion, chopped

1 jalapeno, chopped

handful of cilantro, chopped

1 lime, squeezed



garlic powder

hot sauce (I use Texas Pete)

Cut avocados in half, take out the pit and scoop out the flesh using a spoon.  Throw away the avocado skin and pits.  Place in a large bowl and mash.  Chop the red onion, jalapeno and cilantro.

Squeeze in the juice of one lime.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a few dashes of hot sauce.  Always start with less and adjust to your taste.  Stir well, cover and refrigerate for an hour.  Serve with tortilla chips.

About Karen Ann Lockyer

At the age of 21, I married my husband, AC and moved from Texas to Florida. I was a long way from home and missed my family. So I began cooking the recipes my Mom had cooked. I quickly became a Mom and wanted to give my children the same experience I had growing up with meals around the dinner table every night. I started with the classics like chicken and dumplings, pot roast, chicken enchiladas and desserts. Every good meal has to end with something sweet. Now my children, Lauren, 22 and AJ, 20 are grown. I spend my time in the kitchen expanding my cooking skills and writing down recipes. I am here to share with you the recipes I grew up on and the ones my kids and AC love. I also travel with AC on his business trips and try to find great restaurants and food along the way. I attribute my love for cooking and food to my family who always encourage me and enjoy being my guinea pigs.
