Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. - Guacamole Salsa

Happy Nutrition Day, y'all!! Working in the supplement industry and being the health junkie I am, you didn't actually think I would go today without posting something nutrition-related...did you?!?!

I'm not a homemade salsa kinda girl. If it already comes premade in a jar, and is semi-healthy, there's absolutely no reason for me to make it. But this...THIS...stuff does NOT come premade in a jar and is DE-LISH and, therefore, I'll be making my own salsa from here on out.

I've made it a few times now using it as a dip at a party and even a salad dressing and found myself literally licking the spoon every single time. The best part: it's perfectly sugar, yeast, vinegar or gluten.

If my taste buds had to accurately describe how they feel about guacamole salsa, it'd look a little something like so:


Basically it's some good shizz and we don't ever doubt mah taste buds...mmmkay?

Here's what you'll need:
2 avocados | 1 jalapeño | 1/3 bunch cilantro | 1 garlic clove | 1 lb. tomatillos (peeled & quartered) | sea salt | pepper

Toss 'em all in your Ninja (or blender) in the following order (from bottom to top): tomatillos, jalapeño, cilantro, avocado, garlic, sea salt, pepper. The order is important because if you don't put the tomatillos at the bottom of your blender, the avocado could get stuck on the blades, causing it to stick and not blend well. Once everything is in your blender, give her a good whirl!

Chill for 30-45 minutes before serving & enjoy!

My mouth is watering just looking at it. No joke.

For those of you trying to keep your girlish figure (aka: 99.9% of us), I recommend a couple different chip options. Yes, ladies. This means no more tortilla chips!

Terra Chips (Original) & Lentil Chips (Sea Salt Flavor) - staples in my house
Both are ridiculously healthy, natural and not loaded with crap. Terra Chips are chips made of assorted roots (sweet potatoes, taro roots, etc) and the lentil chips are a clean blend of lentil flour, a little potato starch and sea salt. I've been eating these for, well, years now and can't even remember the last time I bought "real" chips. Just trust me on this one, would ya?

  10. That jalapeno isn't to be confused with juicing it. Not a good idea. Just take my word for it ;) YUM YUM my deary!!!

  11. Wow, this sounds sooooooo good right about now! I could totally live off of avocados and guacamole, so why not guacamole salsa!?! I've never tried those chips before, I'll have to search for them on my next grocery trip. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, Stephanie!

  19. If I liked avocados, I would totally do this! :)

  20. If I decide to NOT eat all this in one serving (kidding!) how long will it last in the fridge before the avocados start turning brown? This looks delish!! Grassy-ass chica! OLAY! :D

    1. I'm not 100% sure but if I had to guess I'd think it would be good for 2-3 days or so. Enjoy!!
