It’s been an insanely busy week. We are in the process of putting our house on the market so it’s been chaotic to say the least. I’m so tired of cleaning and organizing that I could scream. AAAAGGGHH!!! Oh, that’s better. Now if the kids could just stop making things messy and fingerprinting all of the windows mere moments after I’ve washed them, it’d be great! Between the house listing stuff and keeping an eye out for potential places for us to move to, I haven’t been cooking much this week but rather have fallen back on the ol’ stand-by’s. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Especially when it’s taco salad and it has a heaping mound of homemade smoky guacamole on top of it.
Smoky guacamole is really just a simple twist on the classic. I like the taste of pretty much smoked anything so instead of plain old salt, I put in a lovely smoked salt. It’s one of my new favorite discoveries. It’s awesome on all kinds of veggies, tossed into soups, or on grilled meats. It’s super fantastic in guacamole too. Since it’s fall-sports-are-on-tv-but-I-don’t-really-watch-them season, I figure those of you who do, may appreciate a little twist on a healthy fresh dip. So raise that tortilla chip and cheers for smoky guacamole!
