Amazing Classic Guacamole

Why is Guacamole not everyone’s staple appetizer?  It is healthy, incredibly easy, and delicious.  I use it on sandwiches, pastas, and as a dip.  This Amazing Classic Guacamole recipe, though simple, took me months of trial & error (if that sounds long just remember, I didn’t make it everyday!) to find the absolute perfect balance of ingredients for the best tasting (as far as my palate is concerned) Guacamole one can eat.  I pretty much top any Mexican inspired dish with this and serve it frequently at my parties.  It’s almost as much of a staple as my Classic Hummus, and that is saying something!  Bust out your best margaritas and party down, by yourself or with others, I’m always quite happy to party by myself if need be, and dip into your best avocado dish.  Party on!

Ingredients
  1. 1 1/2-2 cups apricots
  2. Approx 6-10 cups water
Instructions
  1. Simmer apricots covered in water. Add more water as is simmers down.
  2. Cook until fully soft. About 25-30 minutes.
  3. Put apricots in blender with remaining water. Puree until totally smooth.
  4. Add more water whilst blending depending on the level of thickness you want.
  5. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. This will make a very large amount. I make this size because it's so great to use on so many things. Freeze what you don't use. A sauce that is great to have on hand for a variety of desserts or other dishes. Add to smoothies, on top of ice cream, in frozen cocktails, with yogurt, with oatmeal, and so much more!
