I love guacamole. I'm fortunate to live next door to friends with a large tree. They've giving me about eight avocados a week.

When life gives you avocados, make guacamole. Or something like that.

I do it the cheap and easy way ... I just take fresh salsa and put it in the mashed up avocado. But if I were having people over, this is a great, simple recipe.
