Guacamole

1 tsp. Turmeric
½ tsp. Ground Cumin
1 tbsp. Ground Coriander
1 tsp. Coarse Sea Salt
¼ cup Olive Oil
¼ cup Lime Juice
2 cloves Garlic, Chopped fine.
½ Red Onion, Chopped fine.
1 Poblano Pepper, Fire roasted, peeled and seeds removed.
½ Jalapeño, Fire roasted, peeled and seeds removed.
½ cup Fresh Cilantro, Chop about half of it fine and mix with olive oil.
4 Avocado

METHOD

In a large mixing bowl add dry spices, and all liquid ingredients
(only half of the lime) and whisk.

Chop the garlic, onions, poblano, jalapeño and Fresh Cilantro,
add to the liquid ingredients.

Cut avocados into 1/2 inch cubes and add to the mixture.

Cut the avocados individually and stir the avocado chunks into
the liquid mixture as soon as they are cut to avoid oxidation.

Mix to desired consistency. If you like a more creamy guacamole,
use a potato masher to mash the avocado pieces.

Cover the surface of the guacamole with the remaining lime juice and salt. This will prevent discoloration of the avocado.
