When I got married, we didn't have the time (or the money) for a real honeymoon. My husband is military and we only had time off for the wedding it's self and the cross country move to get back to his duty station. But we had an extra night after the wedding and we went up to Truckee. While we there, we ate a meal so perfect that it was apparent that our married life was on the right track from the start. It was at a little Mexican restaurant and we started with the best guacamole I have, hands down, ever had. (Part of this might have been because we had been living in Georgia for the past couple years, where a Mexican restaurant had once served me "enchiladas" with cream gravy on them, no I am not joking.)
This is pretty close to that honeymoon guacamole. And since we just recently celebrated our 10 year (!!) anniversary, it seems only appropriate that we celebrate these years with a taste of our beginning. Make it and share it with someone you love.
This recipe is based on how much you like toppings.

Honeymoon Guacamole

Serves 2
2 Hass avocados
1-2 tablespoon your favorite salsa
Big dollop of sour cream
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Chopped black olives
Hot sauce
Peel and smash the avocados with a fork. Sprinkle with salt. Add salsa, combine. Top with sour cream, shredded cheese, olives, and a sprinkle of hot sauce. Serve with tortilla chips.
