When I went to the store for other things I needed for dinner, I completely forgot about the guacamole that was going to accompany the fajitas and chips.
So, no cilantro.
As I re-read the recipe, I realized that cilantro wasn't the only thing I forgot, and at that point I decided to abandon the recipe entirely and just use what I had on hand to make an inspired recipe instead.
Maybe I'm crazy, but I generally don't like tomatoes in guacamole. A little is fine, but mostly I leave them out. Maybe it's because there is usually a tomato salsa nearby when guacamole is on the table. But Bayless's recipe sounded interesting to me because he used sun-dried tomatoes, and he specifically recommended the type that is sold by the dried fruits rather than the oil-drenched ones in jars.
Not very complicated, but good. The sun-dried tomatoes were nice; I'll keep those in mind for another time. Or, maybe I'll make Bayless's recipe next time. It looked really good.
