Aarti Paarti Ep. 20: Guacamole!

There are few things that say party more than guacamole. It comes together in minutes, and alongside a handful of tortilla chips and a cold beer, summer is complete.

But oh, how often have you had BAD guacamole? Or even worse, the store-bought kind that's so runny that it looks like bile? Blech!

Make your own! You can't say you don't know how now. Plus, it's handy when you're about to say a naughty word and the kiddies are around. Holy guacamole!

You'll need:
1 small shallot, minced
Juice of 1-2 limes
3 avocados, 2 mashed and 1 chopped up
1 garlic clove, minced
Handful of cilantro, chopped
Dash of cumin
Dash of garam masala or curry powder
1 tomato, seeded and diced (optional; I didn't have any and it was still good!)
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced

I heart guacamole too! Sometimes I have a bowl for dinner. Mmm.

We have a lovely avocado in the kitchen and I think I just found a use for it : )

My 18 mo daughter found you on youtube on a moment when I stepped away from the computer. I came back and she was watching a demo on Fava pillows. As I pulled her away from the computer she said, "yum." :)
Sooo, I watched your other videos and determined that you and your ukulele playing are the greatest!
I love the recipes and I am going to try them.
