Cafe Rio Style Guacamole

Guacamole is one of the easiest recipes to make, yet it seems like everyone has a different one! Usually, I just buy a mix from the store, but we decided to make it from scratch! And when I say we made it, I mean my mom and dad. This is pretty similar to the kind of Cafe Rio, but we omitted jalapenos and added lemon juice. It turned out pretty tasty!

Unfortunately, we forgot to bring the guacamole out until the very end, so we ended up with a lot of extra. So, sadly, most of it has gone all brown and nasty. But before that, it was amazing. I think I ate most of it myself. Forrest said that when he was on his mission for our church in California, some people would put the avocado cores in guacamole to prevent this. I have no idea if this works, but it’s worth a try!
