TGIF, It’s Margarita Time!

Really, no need to wait for a Friday because any day is a good day for a margarita in my opinion.  But it’s the weekend people! So let’s celebrate it.  Make a point to relax and do something special with friends or family.

I made my stand-by enchilada casserole last night for dinner, so used it as my excuse to make myself a margarita and some homemade guacamole, both with a little added EO goodness.  Hope you give these simple recipes a try and have a great weekend.

Salud!

Guacamole

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 C chopped red onion
  • 1 small clove of garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/8 C fresh lime juice (juice of ~half a lime)
  • 1 drop Young Living Lime essential oil
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • Optional: 1 small Roma tomato, diced
  • Optional: a few dashes of Franks Red Hot, I know there’s some Franks people out there!

Cut the avocados in half and remove pits, scoop the flesh out and put into a bowl. Immediately add the lime juice (to prevent browning) and the rest of the ingredients. Mash avocados and combine ingredients.  Check to see if more salt or pepper should be added.  A little extra salt may really make the difference.  Serve with tortilla chips.

Love Citrus Fresh!  What’s in Citrus Fresh blend and what else can you do with it? Citrus Fresh is a blend of Orange, Tangerine, Mandarin, Grapefruit, Lemon and Spearmint.  This blend can be used in all three ways:  (1) aromatically (breathe it in right from the bottle or through a diffuser,) (2) topically (diluted 1:1 with a carrier oil and rubbed on your skin; put on an area that won’t be exposed to sun,) and (3) internally by adding a few drops to a glass of water. BONUS: Citrus Fresh is one of the oils included in the current Premium Starter Kit.  If you aren’t already a wholesale Young Living member, read why I believe it’s the best way to get started with Young Living
