Guacamole is a very healthy and satisfying snack. It can also be a great side dish. Make sure you skip the chips. Healthier choices to have with guacamole are fresh vegetables, particularly celery, bell peppers, zucchini, cucumber, or jicama. This recipe is very special to me. It was adapted from one of my mom’s recipes. My mom is a well-known chef in Mexico City whose touch in the kitchen is magical.

3 cloves garlic, roasted and chopped
3 organic Roma tomatoes, chopped
3 Tbsp. chopped onion
3/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
3/4 Serrano chile, chopped

1 tsp. sea salt

"Magic ingredients"
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. celery powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
