Cheese-topped guacamole

A fresh, zingy flavor that will make it difficult to stop eating!

This is Week #7 of my 2011 cooking challenge! Click here to view all recipes from this challenge. All recipes created for this challenge come from the Food & Wine Annual Cookbook 2010.

Guacamole recipes are not something I typically seek out. I have my favorite guac recipe, so why look any further? Making the recipe highlighted in this post has taught me a valuable lesson: Don't settle! Don't assume there isn't something better out there! This, of course, does not apply to my marriage because there is no man better for me than my husband. But with guac? I'm sad that I settled for so long!

This guacamole recipe was amazing! It had a fresh, zingy flavor that made it difficult for me to stop eating.

I'm so happy to have found you, new guac!
