Cheryle’s Guacamole

Cheryles Guacamole

My mom is a proud member of the Stamford Lioness in Niagara Falls. There are many benefits to being part of such a great club, but aside from the biggest ones (you know,like being part of the community and serving others) she also gets to meet a lot of really great people and eat a ton of really good food. She recently had a meeting out of town at the Beamsville Lioness for Mexican Night, and everyone brought a dish. This guacamole was brought by a lady named Cheryle (who’s now known as Guac Royalty in my books.)

I typically trust my mom when she tells me that something is really, really good. After all, she’s never lead me astray before. But when she uses phrases like “da bomb,” I know it’s gotta be serious. She asked for the recipe and then passed it on to me, and it wasn’t in my hot little hands for too long before I was in my kitchen whipping up a batch for myself. I leave you now, with the recipe and these words of advice from my mom. “It’s da bomb. You will love it.”
