Guacamole!

For me, food is nearly synonymous to love. Ever since I’ve been young, I’ve spent a good deal of my time in the kitchen, baking, cooking, eating, living (it’s a wonder I’m not Santa-shaped already).

One of the things you’ll learn after years in the kitchen are that cooking is an art and baking is a science. However, upon coming to college, I’m finding it much easier to stick to Hot Pockets and microwaveable dinners. Slowly, over the time I’ve had to adjust to college life, I’ve managed to still enjoy a couple of really simple and easy but delicious recipes. This is a particular favorite of mine that you can alter for your own taste buds.

Essentially, guacamole is really easy to make, how you should approach this is rather that you could find the appropriate ratios of flavors that you like. For instance, generally I like to put diced tomatoes, onions, garlic and cilantro as fresh vegetables in my guacamole. Then, I’ll also add cayenne pepper, salt and the juice from half a lime. However, if you feel like it, some people also choose to add olive oil or jalapenos so feel free to add whatever you think will taste good. Avocados not only taste good, but contain a bunch of health fatty acids that will make your skin more supple and help the joints between your bones, so for a quick, quilt free snack, make guacamole!

  • 3 avocados – peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 3-4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced (try to get the super watery bits out)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper

 Simply put in a bowl and mix! Enjoy!
