Just about every restaurant has their own form of this yummy dip or is it a spread? Today September 16th is National Guacamole Day. Even if you aren't a fan of the Avocado you probably still enjoy a big scoop of guacamole. The lime juice and tomatoes along with the onions and seasonings bring this little green green super food to a whole new space.

It takes adding an avocado to your recipe up to culinary level your friend will appreciate. Plus the avocado is packed with good fats and nutrients so it may also be doing you a health favor and adding flavor.
