When I was little, my dad owned a Southwestern-style restaurant called Cilantro’s. Since I was accustomed to his restaurant’s food, my friend’s four year old birthday parties were…interesting. I’d snub the hot dog stand ( << thank God ) & turn down Funfetti cake.

Instead My requests were black beans, fresh guac, & homemade tamales.

LOLZ.

Anyway, to this day I’m still obsessed with chips, salsa, & guacamole. It’s by far my favorite cheat treat. Throw in a margy-poo ( w/ a half salted rim ) & I’m golden. This guacy recipe is the exact one my dad’s restaurant served, so I’m pretty excited to share.

Quick skinny tip: instead of regular chips I use endive lettuce as “chips.” For guests, I’ll serve a bowl of all-natural blue corn chips instead of sickie Lay’s, Doritos, or Fritos.

And trust me, you’ll love the endive “chips”- they taste insane with fresh guac. Enjoy!

    I am def. going to have to try out this guac recipe – I have been missing mexican style dishes, *especially* home made tamales since I’ve moved. Restaurants here just can’t seem to get it perfect!

    I was wondering what made it skinny…I love guac and this isn’t too far from what I make, but I’ve always thought of it as pretty calorie dense. Then it dawned on me, 3-4 servings! I’m the only guacamole fan at my house, so I end up eating most all of it.
