Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.  Guacamole, Guacamole, Guacamole.  I love it

And I love the fact that there are so many variations on the recipe for Guacamole.  I like the addition of sour cream in Trish’s version, it makes for a lovely creamy texture.  The batch I made wasn’t very spicy, as I was trying out the Mexene Chili Powder Heather and Nathan bought me back from the States.  This is an ingredient in Johnny Cash’s chili (coming soon) – and it turns out, it is very mild.  So if I make Trish’s guacamole again, I’ll use a spicier chili powder.

You know when you see something on ebay and you really want it, even though it is totally superfluous to requirements?  So it is with this vintage Mexene chili tin…

It’s got a little devil on it!  Resist!  Resist!  Resist the little devil!
