Secret Recipe Club time again!! I love the opportunity to check out and talk about new blogs that I have not had the chance to browse before. Once again I found a blog that had so many wonderful recipes that it was hard to choose just one... So, of course I didn't!!
Living in Arizona for a few years turned me into a guacamole fan... It isn't really something that I had ever tried while living in Minnesota and I'm still not completely sold on avocados, but I'm still up for eating them in recipes! I knew guacamole was something that was pretty easy to make but have never taken the time to try it on my own. After looking through the recipes on Katie's blog, I knew that this was the time to try it out. I am so glad that I did - it was as simple as I heard it would be and even more delicious then any guacamole that I have tried from a jar!! This is definitely on the list of things that I will make again...
If you are looking for a great site with healthy recipes, ideas for snacks and much more - http://www.thischickcooks.blogspot.com/ is the place to head to. I got lost in Katie's blog, veering from one place to another - there are so many options to check out!! I have already tried out her peanut butter banana smoothies and her pumpkin pie smoothie - watch for those to come up on my blog soon! :) If you can't wait, just click on the names and you will find the recipes!! The kids definitely liked taste testing those...
(recipe found at http://www.thischickcooks.blogspot.com/)
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 ripe tomato, diced
1 fresh lime, juiced (or about 1-2 tablespoons lime juice)
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1-2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
salt and pepper as desired
Mash avocado with a fork until it reaches a thick, pasty texture with chunks. Stir in remaining ingredients and serve immediately. If making ahead of time, wait and add tomatoes right before serving.
