Avocados

I LOVE avocados. They are so delicious AND nutritious. Unfortunately both my girls hate them and even Adam is not a big fan. So I can't cook with them. Consequently, I often incorporate them into my lunches so I can enjoy them on my own. Like today, I had scrambled eggs and guacamole in a whole wheat pita. Yum! Sometimes I make a grilled chicken and guacamole sandwich, it's yummy too. Here is my recipe for guacamole:

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
4 roma tomatoes, cored, seeded and diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 or whole fresh or pickled jalapeno pepper, to taste (optional)
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbls bottled salsa (optional)
1/2 tsp ground cumin

Mash avocado to desired consistency (I like to leave it a bit chunky) and then add all the other ingredients. Enjoy!
