Charlie's pico de gallo & guacamole..

Okay, our guacamole is REALLY similar to Pioneer Woman's...the only thing we change is to add some garlic powder and about a cup of homemade sour cream to make it stretch since we have a family of 5 and our kids INHALE

pico de gallo:

Sweet onions
Roma tomatoes

1. Dice up the onons.
2. Dice up the tomatoes in an equal size to the onions. Make about the same amount of tomatoes as you did onions.
3. Chop up an equal amount of cilantro.
4. Slice 1 or 2 (we use 1) jalepeno in half and with a spoon, scrape out seeds.
5. Dice very fine.
6. Dump all ingredients into a bowl.
7. Slice a lime in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl.
8. Sprinkle with salt and stir.


1. Halve the avocados lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out onto a large plate.
2. Next. sprinkle some salt and mash the avocados.Add a dash of garlic powder. Just a small dash. :)
3. Now, throw on a big helping of pico de gallo.

4. Stir together gently.
5. Taste with tortilla chips add more salt if necessary.

6. Add a huge helping (about 1 cup) of homemade sour cream!!


Sour Cream:

Pour two cups half and half into jar. Stir in two tablespoons buttermilk or white vinegar. Shake vigorously, then wrap towel around and let sit in a warm place overnight. Twenty-four hours later, you'll have sour cream. Voila!

My husband would love this! I think I just may have to try it out. I'm totally scared of the peppers but I'll try!
