In our area avocados are readily available, so we use them in everything. We top our breakfast eggs with slices of avocado, stuff our tacos, and make guacamole weekly! I grew up on my uncle Mike’s avocado farm, and as kids we would play hide – and seek in the orchard, along with the rats and snakes. We played for hours but also ate lots and lots of avocados. As I visit my farmer’s markets weekly, I do look for fresh produce, and corn was available. So, why not add it to your avocado-guacamole.  Melissa’s produce provided me with fresh avocados and all the fixins.

Use fresh avocados that are fully ripened.

Fresh corn can be easily stripped by using a sharp knife.

Cilantro the key to the best guacamole. If you’re not a fan, you can use parsley.

avocados ready!

Hi Cathy, The Guac-lock actually worked! I love coking from my pantry or refrigerator ingredients, always a surprise when things work out.
Besides, I love uncooked fresh corn…
