Start with your ripe avocados. You can tell an avocado is ripe, by squeezing it lightly. A slightly soft avocado is ripe, while a hard avocado is not ripe.

Cut around the middle of the avocado. The seed in the middle, will not allow you to just cut straight through.

Now here is a secret to getting the juicy middle out of the avocado perfectly each time… Some people use a spoon or knife, but I find all of those way to time consuming. Therefore, I use my own technique, I….

Squeeze it out! That’s right! I simple remove the large seed, grab one of the pieces, and begin to squeeze the avocado. Make sure your avocado is ripe, ones that are not ripe are almost impossible to squeeze cleanly.

As you can see, this technique gets every last of the creamy green inside, out!

And guess what! This works just about,

Next, take your purple onion and dice it up very small. You are going to need ½ a cup.

For the jalapeno, you can use fresh or the ones in the jar. The jar jalapenos can come pre-diced, for your convenience. I usually use one small fresh jalapeno, or about 1 ½ Tablespoons of jarred.

Next, Sprinkle in your cilantro. The cilantro needs to be chopped very small. No one wants to pick up a scoop of guacamole and find a giant leaf hanging from the end of their chip. = )

Next comes the lime! Lime is an important part but it is also the touchiest. I would start with about 1 ½ small limes.

Stir everything together, taste it, and you think it needs more lime, slowly squeeze some more in. I find that 1 ½ is just about perfect every time. Also add in salt to taste. You are now done!

A Tutorial of Deliciousness…

The Ultimate Brownie Recipe!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

recipe 134

If you like nuts in your brownies, start by toasting about a cup to a cup and a half of pecans in a medium sauce pan on low heat. 

recipe 101

Once toasted, lay your nuts on a plate or paper towel, making sure to spread them out evenly so they cool faster. 

 

 

Begin by MELTING your butter.

 

 recipe 093

Cream the melted butter and sugar together in a large bowl.

 

 recipe 097

Add in both your eggs and mix well with an electric mixer.

 

 recipe 104

Now add in your vanilla, oil, cocoa powder, and flour, a little at a time.

Mix until smooth.

 

 recipe 107

Scrape down your bowl and add in your toasted and cooled pecans.

 

 recipe 112

Pour in your white chocolate chips.  I chose white chocolate because you can see them against the darkness of the brownie when you bite into them.

At this point, I give you full permission to use this picture as your desktop background.  It is much to delectable to forget about.

 

 

recipe 122

Now this is an important step! Grease and foil a 9 x 13” pan.  (All this means is to line your pan with foil and grease the foil.)

 

Now pour your batter into your lined baking pan.

 

Bake on 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes, or until a toothpick, when inserted into the middle, comes out with brownie crumbs!

Have a great and delicious day!
