Holy Guacamole is a perfect addition to any Mexican meal. Put it in your burrito, on top of your enchiladas, or just directly inject it into your veins. All are perfectly acceptable.
Why does Guacamole turn brown?
It starts with a little chemical called polyphenol oxidase which is present in Avocados. When that chemical is exposed to oxygen, it oxidizes and causes a reaction that develops a pigment, turning the avocado brown.
How you combat that, is to keep the Guacamole in an airtight container and introduce some type of acidity such as lime or lemon juice.
Holy Guacamole is the perfect addition to any Mexican food dish and it is super simple to make. Why pay the extra $1 when you can make so much more from scratch.
Peed and mash the avocados into a paste. Add all other ingredients into a bowl and viola! Perfect Guacamole!

Who doesn’t like a good Broccoli Cheese Soup? Well, my wife for one, but that isn’t the point.
It’s no-frills, easy, and you can add Jalapeños and bacon to it to send it over the top.
If you want another amazing recipe, try this Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta.
Broccoli Cheese Soup
This right here is a soup for winners. Sometimes you just need a thick and hearty soup to warm the soul after a day chasing Polar Bears through the Arctic. This Broccoli Cheese Soup is super easy to make and tastes great.
Place the butter along with the chopped onion and celery into a pot and sweat these bad boys off. Once translucent, add the flour making sure to keep stirring. If you think you can stop stirring, you are wrong. Keep stirring.
Add the broth and continue to stir. Add in the pepper and salt. After about 2 minutes, you are going to add the rest of the ingredients and let them cook down for about 7-10 minutes. Add in the milk and cheese. Make sure to keep the temperature on a solid 4/10 on the heat scale or you will scorch it and no one likes scorched soups.
Garnish with some Jalapeños and some more cheddar and you got yourself an amazing soup.

If it is one thing you can set your watch to, it is the fact that whenever we go out to Buffalo Wild Wings, my wife orders the Boneless wings with Honey BBQ sauce. She doesn’t stray from her classic order EVER. To be fair she is consistent anytime we order any type of wing.
She is a BBQ girl.
Me on the other hand, I love to try all the different sauces like Asian Zing and the Parmesan Garlic Sauce, I have even ventured to the insanely spicy sauces. I hope to compete in the spicy wing challenge they have.
In her honor, we present to you the Honey BBQ sauce recipe from Buffalo Wild Wings!

This is one of the famous sauces from Buffalo Wild Wings that gives a nice cheesy kick to your wings. It isn’t spicy, but you can add this to other sauces or add your own spiciness with diced jalapeños or Cayenne pepper.
