Pineapple Jalapeño Guacamole

I've come to the conclusion that I will never sleep in again.  My body has been on this schedule for too long and my internal alarm clock doesn't have an off switch.  I'm pretty torn up about this news as sleeping is my second favorite thing to do.  Eating is number one, of course.  

I should just be thankful for the extra awake time during the weekends.  Think of how productive I can be waking up before the sun.  Sadly, knowing myself like I do, I know this extra time will be spent laying in bed with coffee, Pinterest and the Food Network.   I enjoy my lazy Saturday mornings.  Don't judge me. 

I don't know if I've said this before, but my favorite food group is appetizers.  What?  That's not a food group?  Well, it is to me.  And it's my favorite.  I could go to a restaurant and just order starters.  I love them that much.  In fact, I ate some sort of dip that I threw together for dinner last night.  Don't try to tell me that you don't fill up on chips and salsa at Mexican restaurants.  See?  You like it too!

There is something about bite sized food or foods that you can spread onto a cracker or a chip and just pop into your mouth.  It's just easy and casual and maybe that's why I like it.  Casual is how I roll.  Sweat pants are considered casual, right?  

Anyway,  I made this particular guacamole for New Years Eve and ended up eating the rest of it for breakfast.  I must have dreamt about it. Told you I love appetizers.  It was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy and don't forget creamy.  It will be a great addition to that big football game coming up in a couple of weeks.  I don't know that I'll be watching.  I was expecting my team to be there.  They just can't get past the first round of the playoffs.  They're obviously cursed.  Man, I love avocados.  I wish I had one right now.   I think my lack of sleep is affecting my common sense right now so I'm just going to post this recipe.

2 large avocados
2 tablespoons red onion, finely diced
1 jalapeño, de-seeded and finely diced
1/2 cup pineapple, diced (I used canned)

In a medium sized mixing bowl mix together all of the ingredients.  Salt and Pepper to taste.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.

It doesn't get much easer than that!
