Guacamole - The Mexican dip

Love me or hate me, but don't kill my spirits so that I can't rise and shine another day.
If you are sensitive like me, or have gone through some traumatic experiences, I'm sure the phrases above have popped in your head at one point or another.

Though I'm a very sensitive person, God has filled in me an amazing bounce-me-back power. In short, nothing can dullen my spirits for long. The secret perhaps lies in the happy childhood that my parents gave me.

When you are all hurt and feel like you can't move past the hurt, yet have to feed your figures. What you do? 

Try my Mexicana Way!!!

1. Stop for a moment, take a deep breath, then say "cancel" to the happenings (really give it a quit). Here practice is the keyword. Overtime with practice you will say bye to stale things in life more easily. 

2. The making of this dip transforms me to a happy chef again. I don't know clearly if the squishing or squashing of avocados or the magical colours of green, yellow, and red involved give me the zen experience. Slowly but surely it brings a healing effect in me. 

Have your friends over for small talks with a bowl of tortilla chips and guacamole. I'm sure you will be heading to kitchen in no time, wanting to make more, forgetting the bitter experiences you have gone through.  

Give it a try. Did I nourish your body and soul with the power of avocados, let me know....

Ripe avocado - 2
Onion small sized, chopped - 1/2 of a onion
Tomato, chopped - 1/2 of a tomato, seeds removed
Lemon juice - 1/2 of a lemon
Garlic - 1 clove
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped - 2 tbsp
Green chilli chopped - 1, seeds removed

Reserve half of an avocado by cutting it into chunks. Scoop out rest of the avocados and mash them. Add onion, garlic, lemon juice, pepper powder, coriander leaves, and green chilli and mash them. Add tomato and reserved chunks of avocado (don't mash them all up, some chunks of avocados should stay there). Garnish with unflavored tortilla chips and some chopped tomatoes.
