Holy Guacamole!

Holy Guacamole! This is a traditional guacamole recipe using heart-healthy avocados...and is irresistible.
The Lola Cruz Mysteries have a huge food theme. Abuelita's is the family restaurant, and Lola's mother shows her love through the food she cooks. Guacamole is one of those decadent, yet healthy snacks and condiments. It doesn't last long in our house!
