More then Guacamole!!

It's been so long since I've posted, that I feel like a traitor to my blog! Since school has been out and my little angels have been at home with me 24/7, I don't have as much time to blog as I did. And honestly, I've been enjoying the downtime with my girls. But, I did turn out this new recipe tonight and I thought it a shame not to share!
I don't have a picture yet, but I'll try and get one up. This one is a good one for people who like guacamole but their spouses, partners, kids or friends won't eat it. It's more then guacamole!


2 tsps minced garlic
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp chopped onion
3 Plum Tomatoes or 6 or so grape tomatoes (or throw some of each in there if ya like)
2 tbspns or so of crumbled feta

3 to 4 Avocados
1/4 cup sour cream OR Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp mayo
1/2 packet of Knorr's Vegetable Seasoning
juice from half a lemon

Saute the first 4 ingredients in a skillet. I saute'ed them until they were nice and tender -you do what you like.

Spoon avocado butter from your avocados and mash it - then add the next 4 ingredients. Stir well, and then add spoonfuls of the tomato mixture you sauteed earlier. I added half, and then used the other half in a delicious Caesar Salad. Mix it all up and voila, you have a fantastic guacamole different from any other!
Add more vegetable seasoning if you like, or more mayo/sour cream/ this is an easy recipe to doctor to your liking!

*My 7 year old was just horrified at the avocado as I was preparing this dip. She couldn't believe anyone would eat that! As I continued to mix and stir, she started to get interested and after her first taste - she asked if it could be for lunch. haha!


  1. I wanted to make guacamole today to munch on but I want to save some for dinner. How do I preserve guacamole. I don't have tubaware, only Saran wrap.
