roquamole recipeI love Nigella Lawson.  I love everything about her.  She is funny, smart, fun to watch.  And most importantly, the girl likes to eat as much as I do.  I saw her make this recipe on one of her shows and I have to be honest, I really was not sure how I would feel about a blue cheese guacamole.  The only thing that I have to say about it now is, why on Earth did I wait so long to try it?  It is divine.  I love guacamole and I love blue cheese so I really don’t understand why I would think that I wouldn’t like it.  I made it for Clay’s birthday party and everyone would dip their chip in it and say, “what is that?”  Not in a “gross, what did I just put in my mouth” kind of way, but in a “that is heavenly” kind of way.  Another wonderful thing about this is that it takes all of about 5 minutes to make.  The only downside that I can find about it is that you need to eat it as soon as you make it.  There is no citrus in it to help keep the avocados from oxidizing so it turns brown quickly.  Not that it is going to last very long anyway.

I rediscovered this recipe on the new Nigella Quick Collection app for my iphone.  It is super fun and has some great recipes.

guacamole recipeFork together the sour cream and blue cheese.

guacamole recipeAdd in the ripe avocados and mash together.  My weapon of choice is a potato masher.  Mash until fairly smooth.

blue cheese guacamole recipeAdd in the green onions and jalapenos.  Give it a stir.  Check to make sure that it is seasoned properly.  It may need a little salt. This is also an excuse to take a bite before anyone else.  I will not tell, I promise.  Pour into a bowl or eat it out of the one you made it in.
