Guacamole is a great side dish to have all year round, but especially on Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo is often celebrated in the US, though it is a minor holiday in Mexico, and usually revolves around some good Mexican food. Guacamole is one of the dishes you will traditionally see served with tortilla chips. It is made with some variation of smashed avocado, onion, jalapeno, tomato, and lime – and it’s delicious! This recipe will help you tap into those bright latin flavors to make the best healthy guacamole.

Power of Avocados

Avocados are high in fat. Which sounds bad, but it’s monounsaturated fat, which is a “good” fat that helps lower bad cholesterol, as long as you eat them in moderation. These green fruits are also full of much needed vitamins and minerals like potassium, folate, and vitamins B6, C and E. This helps with lowering your risk of some cancers, depression, arthritis, osteoporosis, and inflammation. Avocados also help maintain good digestion, blood pressure, heart health, and vision! Overall, these green fruits simply need to be in your regular diet. Read more about avocados HERE.

Ingredients

  • 3 Whole Avocados ripe
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • 3/4 cup Onion diced
  • 3/4 cup Tomatoes diced, organic
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Cilantro chopped
  • 1 Jalapeño Pepper finely diced, seeds removed
  • 3 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 3/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper Freshly Ground

Instructions

  • Add ripe avocados to a large bowl. Using a potato masher or a large fork, mash until nearly smooth. Be sure to leave some chunks for texture!
  • Add red onion, tomato, cilantro, jalapeño, garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper to the bowl.
  • Fold the ingredients until evenly combined. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Be sure to use ripe avocados. Ripe avocados are lightly soft (but not mushy) and the peel is darker in color.
  • Using Cherry Tomatoes can help to elevate the dish and give it a better texture, depending on the tomatoes.
  • For added look, you can add garnish like Broccoli Sprouts, a sprinkle of Cotija Cheese, and/or extra diced tomatoes and cilantro to the top.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
