Easy Guacamole

Easy Guacamole
I love avacados, as do many people.  It is full of monounsaturated fatty acids that are great for lowering cholesterol and help support cardiovascular health.  It shows anti-cancer benefits and helps promote regular blood sugar.  It  is full of B vitamins, vitamin E, vitamin C, copper, potassium, and fiber.  It contains antioxidants and Omega 3s that help fight against inflamation.  With so many benefits I think it is time to make your own easy guacamole at home. 
I used a mini food processor to mix all my ingredients together.  You can use a ninja or blender if you do not have a food processor. 
1 avacado
1 green onion
1 clove of garlic
dash of cumin
dash of ground coriander seed
dash of salt

1. Begin by dicing your green onion into 1 inch sticks and then transfer it to your food processor. 
2. Add your garlic.  Pulse the food processor about 10 times to give the onions and garlic a nice chop.
3.  Cut your avacado in half and remove the pit. 
4.  Transfer the avacado to  your food processor and blend with a few pulses.

5.  Add your seasons and salt and continue blending until you reach your desired consistency.
6.  EAT UP.  I decided to eat mine with some chicken baked flautas that I made, with a side of fat free refried canned beans, and fat free sour cream.  It was so delicous I didn't have any leftovers!!
