Recipes: My Way Guacamole

In the past I have never really cared for guacamole.  Not sure if it was the colour or the taste that through me off.  My mom always loved it, and had me try it a couple of times, but to no avail.  Now that I have grown up I have begun to really enjoy guacamole.

Despite the fact that I like guacamole now, I still want to do it my way.  Yeah, I’m difficult that way.  Not to mention I still like mustard over ketchup any day.  😉

 

Ingredients:

 

2 Avocados

1 cup of Refried beans

½ cup of sliced Karmata Olives

¼ cup of diced Red/Purple Onions

Salt & Pepper to taste

1-2 cloves of finely minced Garlic

½ a cup of Sour Cream

A dash of Paprika

1 teaspoon of Rosemary

1 teaspoon of Parsley

1 teaspoon of Oregano

1 tablespoon of Lemon Juice

½ cup of diced Red Capsicum

1 teaspoon of Ground Cayenne Pepper

 

Directions:

 

Split your avocados down the middle, long ways.  Remove seeds and use spoon to scoop out the flesh into a bowl.  With a fork (or blender if you like) mash up the avocados until they are smooth.

Peel and dice up your onions.

Slice up your olives (unless you bought them pre-sliced).

Mince your garlic.

Dice your red capsicum.

Now simply add all of your ingredients to the bowl with the avocados.  Mix very well and serve.

I wonder if I’ll learn to like it when I grow up!

(I’m a terrible former-Californian… can’t stand the stuff!)

 

    Lol, yeah I couldn’t either. Don’t worry one day you will grow up and things will change. 😉

     

      I think I’d like to be a fireman when I grow up!

       

        I wanna be a princess!

        Lol, who am I kidding. I’d be the worst princess in the world I think. 😛
