Jicama & Orange Guacamole

by Lauren


Got Chips? Make some orange guacamole!

Yes, orange guac, my friends. Orange is the new lime.

This still contains all the delicious guacamole staples like red onion, cilantro, and garlic but with a little twist.

I needed something homemade, something…from the little yellow kitchen (come on, I couldn’t resist). While scheming up the mexican meal I would tackle next, I stumbled upon this little jewel: Tacos Carne Asada courtesy of Tyler Florence. Oh, not to mention I … Read more...
