Its been snowing all day, and I never complain since those are the days I spend some quality time with my husband and kids. I think the snow storm compels everyone to be bound home for safety, roads get nasty also so we all rather stay home safely unless it is something really important!!!
What a nice compelling way to bond with family? LOL! Today is such a day- my husband ended up working from home and he ‘s always attending calls and in meetings all day long. I decided to start the day late with brunch. So the menu was Homemade Waffles with Strawberries and syrup with powdered sugar dusting like the snow!!!! Then I made my husband’s favorite masala scrambled eggs with toast.
We watched a movie together and now its dinner time! I decided to recreate the Guacamole that is served with tortilla chips at California Pizza Kitchen under the Short eats menu for 5$. I have to be honest- I simply love it and am left craving for moreeeeeeeeeeeee.
I checked my refrigerator and had all the ingredients to recreate the recipe and the will, ofcourse:) so decided to go for it!
Red/ Orange Bell Pepper-1/2
Black beans- 1/4 cup
Sweet Corn- 1/2 cup
Lemon Pepper- 1/2 tsp
Garlic powder-1/2 tsp
Cumin powder-1/2 tsp
Black pepper coarsely ground powder- 1/4 tsp
Cilantro leaves for garnish
I start by dicing Onion, Jicama, Bell pepper finely. I use frozen sweet corn, so I let water boil and thaw it by letting it sit in the boiling water for about 5 minutes or so. After 5 min’s, transfer the corn to a bowl of cold water. Then I take a bowl, peel the avocado skin, take all the avocado pulp and transfer in the bowl. I add all the spices, salt to taste and mix it as I mash the avocado well to incorporate all the ingredients together. Then I squeeze half a lemon and mix the lemon juice with mashed avocado. Add diced onions, jicama, bell pepper, jalapeno. Mix well. Transfer the corn and black beans at this point. Mix again and garnish with cilantro leaves. Enjoy!
