Quinoa Guacamole

An easy crowd pleaser, and a super healthy and hearty recipe. Reviews claim it’s even better the second day, but I wouldn’t know since my family polished all off the first night. The original recipe called for 1/2 jalapeño pepper. If you like it spicy, give that a try.

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

In a medium bowl, mash together avocado, lime juice, and salt. Add remaining ingredients, then toss to combine well. Serve warm or cold.
