Recipe: Easy Layered California Guacamole


By Honey Good. This is one of my all time favorite recipes and it's always a crowd pleaser. So might I suggest maybe making this for any Super Bowl party you may be hosting or attending this weekend!

I buy the cheese shredded at the market. I also add extra garlic, Tabasco, salt and lemon juice to my guacamole. I mix the tortilla chips with black corn chips for color and taste and surround my platter with them. If you could hear the rave comments from friends as they scoop up the guacamole, you wouldn't hesitate with this recipe for a second! It's imaginative and delicious!
