Recipe Notes

  • Guacamole recipe HERE Salsa recipe HERE. Fresh from the produce section of the store will work great too. Toppings not included in nutritional estimate.
  • If you have time use freshly grated cheese as it will have the best flavor but if you don t have time a pre-shredded Mexican blend cheese will work here as well. Look for a package with the thicker shreds.
