Happy Easter!

Being the non-traditional people that we are, this was our Easter dinner.  Avocado enchiladas with corn.  To drink: Trader Jose's (a Trader Joe's brand of beer like Corona, only tastier and half the price.)  Happy Easter everyone!

The Recipe:
Avocado Enchiladas (makes 5 servings)
1 tsp oil
1 small yellow onion, finely diced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp sugar
2 tbs cumin

4 ripe avocados
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
1/2 onion, finely diced
