Easy Guacamole and Fresh Salsa

Your parti-cardi won’t be the only hit at the potluck party

It’s much easier to go to the supermarket and purchase dips and salsa, but there is something about preparing it yourself that it just so appealing to me. I’m so busy that my mind sometimes takes flight; cooking is one of the things that forces me to slow down and concentrate.


For salsa,
cut up two large tomatoes
onion (maybe two depends)
green pepper
jalapeño peppers ( I use the ones from a jar)
fresh cilantro
toss with lime juice, and salt and pepper (spicy pepper medley is my favorite).
Leave in the fridge for at least two hours

For Guacamole,

You use a lot of the same ingredients as the salsa that’s why I typically make them together.

Cut up two avocado, mash and set aside.
Cut up: large tomato, onion, jalapeño peppers, Fresh Cilantro
toss together and mix with avocado
add lime juice and mix to desired consistency
add salt, spicy pepper medley, garlic, red pepper chili flakes
Sometimes I’ll put a spoonful of the juice from the jalapeño peppers.
If you leave the pits from the avocado in the guac it’ll help it from turning brown 🙂

c’est tout
Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or my personal favorite the little round mini pitas
Let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours, put on your party-cardi (might I suggest burgundy?) and you’re ready to rock and roll.



sincerely,
miss kayla

    🙂 it's the best

    Ohh and if you ever have left over avocado say for instance when you are making sushi put a bit if lime juice on them, and put the pits in the container 🙂 Also you should buy them a few days before you want to eat them. Put them in a brown paper bag and leave them in the crisper for two days and they should be soft, but firm 🙂
