Guacamole Recipe for Avocado Fans

Hi everyone!  I am posting here to share another recipe. 

While I still paint and enjoy polish on my nails, I have been doing other things to share my love of polish besides posting on my blog here, I have been posting on twitter, and livestreaming manicures on Meerkat. I have also been focused on my health as a top priority, so I have been exercising and making healthy food too, and trying to limit the foods I know are bad  for me. It is easy when I can eat yummy things like the recipe below!

Yesterday I live streamed myself making this recipe for guacamole. I promised to share the recipe, so here goes.  I was inspired by Alton Brown's recipe for guac, here, but I made some changes to make it customized to my tastes.  Here you are friends, enjoy!


½ tsp ground cumin
1/2 lemon( juice of)
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/2 medium onion, minced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 tbsp cilantro leaves, chopped
1 clove garlic,  minced

Peel and remove seeds from avocados by preferred method*. Mash AVOCADOS in a bowl with a potato masher or place into a food processor and pulse briefly. Add other ingredients and mix. We love this with tortilla chips. Makes 4-5 cups.

*For rough skinned fruit, I use the divide and conquer method, I cut it in half, remove the pit and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.  For smooth textured fruit I peel the fruit with a vegetable peeler and then cut in half around the pit, and twist sides to remove pit. 

Simplified Guacamole for freezing

Mash 4 avocados and combine with one tablespoon cilantro and juice of a lime or one half lemon.  Freeze in Ziploc bags with all air removed. Thaw in refrigerator before needed.
