Once in a while, I have that crazy craving for a piece of dark chocolate, or a good piece of homemade brownie. But you know what else that I crave more frequently other than chocolate? Something savory, like chips and a good homemade dip. One of my all-time favorite night-time “snacks” or “munchies” are homemade guacamole and very good tortilla chips. Just like cookies (or I guess, any other homemade goods), once you have a fresh homemade one, you can never go back to the store-bought one!
Obviously, everyone has their favorite toppings or add-ins, but feel free to take this as your base. This version below is something that I just kind of came up as I played around with it, using ingredients that I normally just have around the house. Putting this together takes me less than 5 minutes if I have leftover minced garlic and onions ready in the frig. If not, then it will take me 10. But I just use this “recipe” below as a guidelines. I recommend that you taste the guacamole with the chips that you’ll be serving it with, and then make whatever modifications that you want based on your own preference.
