Strawberry Guacamole


        I'm the kind of person that loves eating different food. I suppose it's because I cook
       a lot and get bored easy with food. The day that this recipe came to me, I immediately
       ran to the car and went to the store. I was so anxious to put these flavor combinations
       together. I knew that they would go perfectly together, and boy did they ever. It was a
       match made in heaven. An explosion of flavor and oh so good for you!!!

                                                                  Strawberry Guacamole
     
           2 Haas avocados, ripened
           5 to 6 strawberries, chopped
           1 to 2 limes, juiced
           2 or 3 tablespoons red onion
           3 basil leaves, minced
           salt and pepper
           cinnamon/sugar pita chips

            In a medium bowl mix avocado ( I like mine chunky ) and all the other ingredients.
            Serve with cinnamon pita chips or whatever you like best!
