Time for a recipe? How about CILANTRO-LOVER'S GUACAMOLE?

Well, posting a recipe weekly (as I had planned) hasn't been happening lately. Life gets in the way sometimes, especially this time of year when everyone who works in a school is insanely busy! So, time to post a recipe...

My very favorite site, Kalyn's Kitchen, has a wonderful recipe posted for Guacamole lovers! (OK, I am a guacamole lover - yum!) Since Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner, this seemed like an appropriate time to post!

Kalyn is a great food blogger, and she always posts nice healthy (low carb) recipes. I appreciate her blog and use it frequently when looking for yummy recipes to try at home. I hope you enjoy it! I know I will...

(Makes about 1 1/2 cups guac) Recipe created by Kalyn (click on the above link to go to Kalyn's site)

2 medium avocados (must be ripe and ready for guacamole)
1 T lime juice
3 T very finely minced red onioin
1/4 cup finely minced cilantro
1/4 tsp Ancho chile powder
1/2 tsp Vege-Sal (or 1/4 tsp salt)
1/2 tsp Green Tabasco sauce (or to taste)

Peel avocados & dice. Put into a glass or plastic bowl and toss with lime juice.

Chop your red onion & cilantro, add to avocado. Add chile powder, Vege-Sal, and Green Tabasco to the bowl.

Use a fork, mash & stir the avocado until other ingredients are mixed in & avocado is mostly mashed, with a few chunks here and there. Taste for seasoning and add more salt, chile powder or hot sauce depending on your desires.

If you are a South Beacher - you wouldn't want to have regular tortilla chips, but instead use whole wheat tortilla chips or brown rice tortilla chips. You could even have it in a salad, or with whole wheat crackers.
