Homemade Guacamole & Baked Chip Recipe
So over the summer one of my go-to recipes was homemade guacamole & baked corn chips. I like making my own chips because it's way healthier & I love the consistency. So I decided to let everyone in on my secrets!
Also, if anyone is looking for a gift to get me I really need a stone bowl for guac. Ok thanks!
(makes enough for 3-4 people)
2 ripe avocados
Half of a tomato (I like firmer tomatoes for this)
A ton of cilantro
Half of a lime
The best way to cut an avocado is right down the middle, split it and take out the pit. Peel the skin back & throw it in a bowl. Rinse tomato & your cilantro. Chop both up finely. Throw that into the bowl. I do not measure my dry ingredients I do it to taste. Start with a little & add more as you go. I like a lot of cilantro & a lot of lime. I do not like real onion because it's too much so that is why I use the powder. Since I sadly do not have a guac bowl I use a fork & mash to consistency you like. I like mine chunky.
For the chips, take a pan and grease it with avocado oil and so the same with your tortillas. I make four at a time. Lay them on the pan & sprinkle with paprika. Pre-heat the oven to 475 and bake for 8 min. Let them cool & then use a pizza cutter to cut.
I am a red wine drinker but in the summer it's too dang hot! So naturally I was drinking a lot of seltzers, until they started hurtingmy stomach really bad. Not even when I was drinking them, but when I wasn't. I was having pains, throwing up & not eating because it hurt too bad. I realized that's what it was, the overdoing of seltzers. So I switched to Rosé or Sauvignon Blanc!
The good thing about these are good pinks & whites can be cheap AND good! So this weekend I chose 4 wines under $10! One of them is under $5!!! I did a taste testing & really loved all of them. I prefer a dry, flat wine which all of these are.
So I am going to focus more on what I have been eating this year. But in a nutshell as far as workouts go, I do CYCLEBAR 2-3 times a week, 2 of these include workouts for arms. I don't like weight lifting, I like doing more cardio, body workouts so I will use the PELETON app to do some HIIT workouts 1-2 times a week on top of the CB. The days I do not do CB I do the HIIT or jog 1.5-2 miles. I recently finished my first 5k of 2021 through a vineyard at 37 min. It was not easy, but was fun!
I feel like everyone had found their "thing" during the 2020 quarantine° my "thing" is making margaritas, specifically spicy ones. I was infusing my own tequila with jalapenos for either watermelon or pineapple spicy margs. I became quite the mixologist and muddler!
A few weeks ago I was at Whiskey Joe's beach bar and I ran into a tequila rep who offered me a shot. Umm YES please. It was a spicy tequila and IT WAS AMAZING. I ended up getting two bottles and created a recipe to share with y'all. I never ever use margarita mix, that will tear your stomach UP. There is way too much sugar in those, trust.
