Once upon a time there were three kids who helped their mom (me) make a quick and easy guacamole recipe. Made with all fresh ingredients, the guacamole was quite healthy and apparently delicious.

Boxing others out, a hand holding the bowl, and scraping the dish ensued in the 5 minutes we had freshly made guacamole in our house. In order to have guacamole more often, the kids debated on some dates, then officially declared Mondays ‘Mexican Food Monday’ from here on after.
