I didn’t really get into avocados until just a few years ago but ever since then I have been hooked. One of my favourite way of enjoying avocados has to be in guacamole as it show cases the avocados beautifully and it is just plain amazing! The base recipe for guacamole is pretty easy and once you have it mastered it is fun to play around with it and I often like to try adding different ingredients to change up the flavour profile a bit. After having both avocado slices and a blue cheese in a sandwich a while ago I had been fantasizing about combining them in a guacamole and on fajita night it was the perfect chance to try it out. I pretty much just took my number one guacamole recipe and added blue cheese which I brought up to room temperature first so that it would more easily mash into the guacamole. In the end I quite enjoyed the blue cheese guacamole! The tangy blue cheese played particularly well with the cool and creamy avocado and added added a hint of flavour that just made everything better.
