This post brought to you by Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.
Guys you may recall from previous posts but I love avocados. I typically use them to make a tasty guacamole dip. However sometimes I shake things up a bit. For instance I also like to make a creation I call guaccumus. Guacamole + Hummus = Guaccumus. It’s scrumptious. Check out my guaccumus recipe at the end of this post.
To make your yummy guacummus you’re going to want to pick up some Avocados from Mexico (there are some fab recipes on their site).
I also recommend checking out I love avocados on Facebook . They have some really fun stuff on there including ringtones, virtual gifts, wallpapers, screensavers and blogger badges. I downloaded the Authentic Guacamole wallpaper seen above. It was so easy. Just choose a wallpaper and click the orange “Download” button underneath of the picture. Then 4 size choices will come up. Choose the correct size for your screen and click on it. Then you will see a box that says “You have chosen to open” and the file name. Then just select “Save File”. Once you’ve downloaded the wallpaper right click it and choose “Set as Desktop Background”. Voila, a tasty wallpaper for your computer, phone or ipad is now yours!
missemmamm’s Guaccumus Recipe
1/2 can of chick peas (I prefer it to be more guacamole than hummus, if you want it more hummusy use a whole can)
1/2 medium tomato
1/4 yellow pepper
1/4 red pepper
1 1/2 segments of garlic (I like it super garlicy, you can use less if you prefer)
a few leaves of cilantro
juice from 1/2 of a lime
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Chop your veggies into small pieces. Mix the spices in a bowl. Mix the olive oil and juices in a bowl. Combine all ingredients in a food processor until it hits the desired consistency. I like my guacamole fairly smooth but many prefer it a bit lumpy.
