Splurging for the Playoffs (Ground Turkey Nachos+Guacamole)

So happy I was able to break away from my school work and make a few Sunday Funday apps for the playoffs! After a night out with my good friend Gabby, Brian, and his roommates there was no way we could pass up the idea of homemade nachos and guacamole. It def hit the spot.


What you need:
  • 4 ripe avocados (halved)
  • 2 limes(juiced)
  • 1/2 red onion(diced)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • salt+pepper, to taste
  • 2 jalapenos(diced) 
  • 1 tbsp of chopped cilantro
Place the pulp from the avocados in a medium bowl and mash with a fork leaving some large chunks. Add garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper, cilantro, red onion, jalapenos and mix thoroughly.
Place the pit of avocado in the guacamole if you are serving at a later time to keep the guacamole from browning.
