Easy Guacamole

guacamole1/2 purple onion (chopped) I used yellow onion

4 avocado (medium)
cilantro (sprinkle of, chopped finely)

Directions

Total Time
15 min

I used 1/2 of a jalapeno, yellow onion (not much) and a tomato, put everything in the food processor except the avocado, mixed lightly so it was still a little chunky, then did the avocado the same way and mixed the two together. Very easy and good.

I went to a conference last month and met the author of a cool cookbook!

The Foodie Bar Way

The book is based upon simple recipe directions which can be increased in complexity.

The food is served by breaking ingredients down and serving separately so that each family member can pick their favorites to incorporate into the meal.

It has more than 90 recipes and 30 Foodie Bars, including a Loaded Potato Bar, Mediterranean Fajita Bar, Pasta Bar and even an Oatmeal Cookie Bar.

All recipes are oil free.

I substitute the salt with Benson’s Table Tasty.

Of course we have lots of recipes on our recipe page.

Please subscribe for helpful hints and inspiration.
