Thursday night's dinner was Enchilladas De Pollo. This is one of my favorites especially when served with Frontera Roasted Tomato Salsa (the absolute BEST), chips, sour cream, and guac.

Guacamole
Recipe By :Ina Garten
4 ripe Haas avocados
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
8 dashes hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion)
1 large garlic clove -- minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium tomato -- seeded, and small-diced

Cut the avocados in 1/2, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl. (I use my hands.) Immediately add the lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
