I love Avocados

When I was younger my mother used to dress her tacos with avocado guacamole every Taco Teusday. Cringing, I refused to try this vegetable (later learning it's actually a fruit) due to it's green color and smooth texture. It wasn't until years later after I had just ingested half a pan of 7 layer dip that I realized I loved avocados. Now I make guacamole, mix it with ranch to dip my deep fried pickles, and even eat it in salads but my 7 Layer Dip is a specialty. It's super easy to whip up too.
