Guacamole

People tend to debate how guacamole should be made quite frequently.  Some think there is a right way and a wrong way, but I just think it comes down to personal preference.  You can really add any ingredient you want (I have seen crab, shrimp, pineapple, mango, etc.!)  For me though, I like to keep it somewhat simple.  I prefer the flavor of the avocado to still shine through.  Below is my version of guacamole.  Give it a try and let me know what you think! 







Guacamole 

5 large ripe Hass avocados, chunky dice
3 or 4 limes
1 or 2 garlic cloves, grated (use one if you have big cloves because the garlic can be strong)
1 medium onion, finely chopped (if using red onion, rinse it in a sieve before adding)
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 cup of fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp. of ground cumin
Himalayan salt, to taste
tortilla chips (pick your favorite ones!)

Directions:
Place the diced avocados in a medium sized bowl, squeeze the lime juice all over them, and toss lightly.  This will keep the avocados from turning brown, add some brightness to the flavor, and can also act as salt alternative.  Add the rest of the ingredients (minus the chips), stir, and check for seasoning.  If you don't like a chunky guacamole, feel free to mash the mixture with a fork.  Enjoy with tortilla chips!  It really is that simple!

  1. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

    Sat Nam Kriya Yoga


    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.


    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:
