First, let's get one thing straight. I am not Erika. I am her 11-year-old son Emery. I will be guest-blogging for this one post.
Well, today, I was eating dinner, when my mom suggested that I have some fruit or vegetable. She suggested avocado, because we have a dozen Hass avocados from the California Avocado Commission. So, I started with my usual, avocado with lemon and salt, but then I decided that it needed a little...well, spice. Mom suggested that I put a little bit of hot chipotle powder on, since I am not afraid of the spice at all. So, I did, and it was perfect. It packed the perfect amount of spice into every bite.
But, I still thought that it needed something more to go with it. That's when I saw my mom cooking the already-prepared-just-cook tortillas from Costco. I asked her if I could have one to go with my avocado, and that was the crowning glory. When you combine the creaminess of the avocado with the chewiness of the tortilla, it's unspeakable how good it is. Here's the recipe, so you can make it yourself, and when you're finished, reward yourself with the miraculous combination of flavors.
