I am usually a purist when if comes to my guacamole.  You can find my basic recipe here, but I was inspired to mix it up a little recently.  Not too many changes, just the addition of some cheese (and when is cheese not the best addition!?) and some scallions for a nice fresh flavor.  I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Don't waste the calories on tortilla chips this summer, use your favorite veggies as dippers.  Some of my favorites are cucumber, jicama, celery, carrots, peppers and tomatoes.
