Holy moly, I ate the whole bowl of Guacamole!

Guacamole is easily the world's most perfect dip.  It's simple, easy to make, and extremely nourishing.

This recipe should serve 4-6 people, unless you are in love with guacamole like I am and then you better double the recipe. 

3 large ripe avocados
1 diced fresh tomato
1 large clove garlic, minced
Juice of 1/2 a lemon or lime
A handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
Generous sprinkle of salt

Mash the avocado with a potato masher or back of a fork, then add the rest of the ingredients.  Stir until combined, and transfer to a clean bowl if you are serving fancy folks, otherwise just dig in!

Chicken enchiladas

I've always been a little nervous of making my own enchilada sauce.  Well, no more!  This is the easiest and yummiest sauce!

Taco Spaghetti

Ok, I know, the name sounds childish, but I enjoyed this dish just as much as my son.  It's fun to chop the toppings together and you can serve this buffet style so everyone can pick their favorites.

Cooked rice or quinoa pasta
Spaghetti sauce

Shredded cheese (mild cheddar, Monterey Jack or your favorite)
Finely chopped onion or green onion
Sliced black olives
Avocado slices or chunks
Sour cream or plain yogurt

Cook pasta according to package directions and toss with spaghetti sauce to coat the noodles well, don't drench them.  Warm sour cream or plain yogurt in a small saucepan over the lowest heat, just until it is warmed.  Serve spaghetti and sauce and allow guests to choose their own toppings.  Serve with a green leafy salad.
