Place the chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes and diced onion into a bowl. Add about 2 tablespoons of lime juice (taste to see if more is needed) then add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chips and guacamole!
-Avocados (depending on how much you want to make, I used 5 for about 5 people)
-2 Tomatoes diced
-1 Red onion diced
Scoop the avocado pulp into a large bowl. Mush it together till soft. Then add the lime juice about 2 tablespoons however taste as you add to see if it is the right amount. Then, fold in the red onion, tomatoes & cilantro. Add salt & pepper to taste. I served it with chips however you can also eat this with pita bread or crackers.
In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. Then, fold in the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.
Greens can be any mix you like. Spinach and arugula were used here.
-Roasted beets (olive oill, salt and fresh cracked black pepper)

I enjoy a good Mexican dish, and tacos served with tomato salsa and guacamole would be one of my fav! This is a quick and easy easy way to get your fix. The beef can be served in both hard taco shells as well as soft.
- Ground Beef
- Ortego tacos & taco seasoning mix
- 2 tbl Olive Oil
Brown the ground beef with the oil in a pan. After the beef has browned, drain the water from the pan, and add about a cup of water to the meat along with the seasoning mix (it says the exact amount of water on the packet of the seasoning mix) Warm up the tacos in the oven but be careful not to leave it in for more than a few min b/c it heats up quickly and will burn!
