Authentic Guacamole

I promised my friend, Autumn, that I would post my guacamole recipe. She told me that she doesn’t generally like guacamole but the blend of flavors in this version kept her coming back for more.

THE TWIST

Creamy and rich, the avocado is a very healthy fruit because of its nutrients which include vitamin K, fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin C, copper, vitamin E and more. Plus, avocados contain monounsaturated fat that helps to lower cholesterol. Avocados also help regulate blood pressure and guard against other circulatory diseases such as stroke.

Avocados greatly boost your body’s ability to absorb health-promoting beta-carotene and lycopene found in the other vegetables in this guacamole such as the tomatoes and cilantro. They contain lutein which protects against eye diseases which cause blindness such as macular degeneration and cataracts and glutathione which greatly slows down aging and helps to prevent cancer.

Instead of using another less healthy spread on a sandwich or bagel use this guacamole or avocado slices instead!

AUTHENTIC GUACAMOLE

4 large ripe avocados, seeded
1 t ground cumin
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 serrano chile peppers, seeded and minced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
3 T fresh lime juice
1/4 t Himalayan sea salt*

Cut and scoop the flesh out of the seeded avocados and place in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and blend, leaving some small avocado pieces intact. Taste to adjust seasonings. Serve with organic blue corn tortilla chips.
