My Wholly Guacamole Go-To Recipe

This week, I would like to introduce you to my Go-To guacamole recipe. Guacamole is one of my specialties. Every time there's a friends' gathering I'm the one to bring the guacamole; everyone loves it. So, here I am sharing my recipe with you and how I make it.


Two ripened medium-sized Mexican avocados

Two ripened medium to large plum tomatoes

Half a coriander bunch a.ka. Cilantro.

One medium to large red onion

One small husked green tomato a.k.a. tomatillo

2 large green limes (squeezed)

3/4 cup of Goya extra virgin olive oil

1 pouch of Concord Foods guacamole mix (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste.


I use a manual mixer for making my guacamole. But, you can use an electric blender. I find that using the manual mixer gives me a better chance to blend all ingredients without over blending. That way, all the colors from the ingredients (tomatoes, onions) can be appreciated and contrast with the yellow-green from the avocados. I would suggest not to add all ingredients together in the electric blender, but in the order that the recipe calls. That way we can have a chunky, colorful, and tasty guacamole.

Set up manual mixer, using the helix blade. In the mixer bowl start adding the ingredients as follows:

Cut the avocados lengthwise, once sliced cut into small cubes, press your thumb in the peel and drop cubes into mixing bowl. Dice plum tomatoes into chunky pieces, and add them to the avocado. Peel onion off and using a shredder, shred the onion into the bowl using the finest shredding side. Do, the same with the tomatillo. Now, add the olive oil.

Place the mixing bowl lid with helix blade and start blending all ingredients together. The olive oil will make it easier to mix all larger ingredients faster. Blend until you have formed an even paste, but still can see some chunky red pieces from the plum tomatoes. Take a taste of it to check if more oil is needed.

Add the content of the guacamole mix pouch. This will work as a preservative. Squeeze the two limes making sure to catch the seeds, add salt and pepper. Replace the lid, and start mixing the ingredients again. Keep blending, until the little pieces of the red plum tomatoes can be seen. Take a taste of the mix to check if more salt is needed.

Take a half bunch of coriander and cut it into tiny pieces. Start cutting bunch from the roots up. Toss the hairy roots. And cut your way up to the leaves, keeping the stems. Once, the bunch is nicely cut. Add coriander to the mix. Replace bowl lid and mix the coriander, until some of it has gone to the bottom. Now that all ingredients are perfectly blended, taste the guacamole. Once you have reached your desired flavor, serve in a separate glass bowl. Transfer the guacamole from the mixing bowl into a clear glass bowl using a large spatula. Garnish with scallions, capers, banana peppers, and jalapenos. It's up to your taste and your guests' preference.

This recipe is mild. So, if a spicy recipe is desired. Shred two jalapeno peppers before the onions, and add a half cup of Texas Pete hot sauce or Tabasco sauce. If, taking both recipes to a party, decorate the spicy guacamole with the jalapenos only to identify it from the mild.

Spicy Guacamole with Toasted Chips

This recipe can be chilled overnight if serving the day after making it. The guacamole can be used as a dipping sauce for corn tortilla chips or topped on toasted baguettes.

I hope that you try it and enjoy it!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
