Oh, heck yes. This is magic, literally, if an avocado stuffed with mango salsa is not natures magic then I don’t know what is. (drooling). The color and flavor combinations are really supreme and I invision this being the perfect appetizer for an outdoor dinner party on a warm summer night. Here in Los Angeles we have an abundance of those nights but a serious shortage of backyards…, oh apartment living (sigh). I am manfesting the perfect house with a lovely backyard and communal table that I will call home, perferrably in 2016 at the latest, so I can have all the dinner parties I want. I reccomend serving this with an ice cold cerveza. Cheers to that. CHOMP! xo
Buddah says that “The mind is everything. What you think you become.” I can’t even tell you how many times I have read or been told that your words and thoughts are powerful. So, above saying to you I will have a house by 2016 with a backyard to call home is as real as gravity is keeping my feet on the ground. As I mentioned in my previous post, I completed the Landmark Forum this past weekend. I learned so much about myself and everything from my past makes sense and I am more in the present then I have ever been.
So “The mind is everyting. What you think you become.” Sure, thats not complicated, I get. One positive thought in the morning can change your whole day, blah blah. Think positive thoughts for a positive life, invision what you want your future to look like, tell someone else your goals and on and on and on. I didn’t realize that I didn’t actually understand the gravity of what Buddah teaches. I am not a Buddahist, I am not an ‘anything’ and in that I am everything. Our word is as real as gravity and I never fully understood it because the ‘WHY’ had never been explained to me. Why is our word so powerful, why does our word shape the future? Why does what I say in the present create the future? I now have the answer to this. I get it. Moral of the story is to be so wildly authentic and honor your word. Keep your word at all costs. So without any hesitation, I am honoring my word and giving you the recipe as promised: xo
What you need:
- 2 medium mangos, chopped into small cubes- about 2 cups
- 1 cup fire roasted corn
- 3/4 cup red bell pepper- chopped
- 1/2 cup red onion- finely chopped
- 1/4 cup cilantro- chopped
- 1-2 garlic cloves- chopped
- juice from 1/2 large lime
- juice from 1/4 medium lemon, plue more for avocados
- 1-2 tsp jalapeno- chopped (optional)
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
- pink salt and pepper to taste
- 3 avocados, sliced in half.
1. prepare all of your beautiful ingredients. Combine in a bowl and mix well.
2. slice your avocados in half, and carefully peel off the skin. squeeze lemon juice on the outside to slow the browning.
3. using a spoon, scrap out some of the avocado to create more of a bowl for the salsa to go in. (I spooned the extra into my mouth, no way could I let it go to waste, shh).
3. fill up your avocados with the mango salsa, garnish with extra cilantro and serve immediately
