Of all the green foods, this one might be the very best!

Guacamole is made from avocados, which are heavy, pear-shaped fruits that grow on trees. They are not sweet and juicy like other fruit. Instead, they are thick and rich, wiht a gentle, quiet flavor. When you mash them up and add a few zesty seasonings, they make a great dip for tortilla chips. It's really fun to have some salsa on hand, so you can dip the chips into the guacamole and then into the salsa.

Note: Guacamole loses its color if it sits around for too long. Putting the avocado pits back in helps keep the color bright.
