Move over carrots! Surprisingly avocados are loaded with carotenoid antioxidants that help lower our risk of heart disease and provide important anti-inflammatory properties. Here is a fast and easy way to get some of that green goodness in you!
1 ripe avocado freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste one pinch chili powder
one pinch cumin powder
salt and pepper
optional ingredients: chopped fresh cilantro chopped fresh garlic chopped fresh tomato chopped fresh sweet or hot pepper
In a bowl mash avocado with a fork to preferred consistency (I like mine chunky!) Mix in lemon juice and spices and stir in any optional ingredients. Chopped fresh cilantro makes a beautiful garnish.
Serve immediately with organic corn chips or fresh cut veggies.
