Favorite Ingredients Friday...The 4th of July Edition

I love this holiday. To know we are free and so many men and women risked their own lives for us. Doesn't that feel good?
My dear friend Overwhelmed with Joy is hosting a 4th of July Edition for Favorite Ingredient I though I would share my favorite for the fourth.
My mom always has a cookout....ALWAYS.
Sometimes we are out of town...but she always does it when we get back or before we go.
She makes a great Guacamole Dip.

Gracie's Guacamole Dip

6 soft avocados...make sure they are soft...that is the key.
1 cup of real mayo
1 cup of sour cream
2 tsp of Tabasco sauce
1 small ripe tomato chopped
1 cup of chunky salsa
Mash avocado's then mix everything together...serve with tortilla chips.......

Happy 4th of July!

I love your mom's name. :-) And I suspect I'd also love her guacamole. Just reading that recipe made me start craving guacamole and Doritos. What a perfect thing to serve at a Fourth of July celebration. I may be running to the store for some avocados today!

It's so nice to hear you sounding all chipper again - sounds like all the stress your were going through is behind you now. I can't wait to hear all about the big move into the new house.
