We like to have our guacamole a little on the thick and chunky side. Though we can mash it up as pureed or chunky as you like ;)

Leaves such a fun color don’t you think? And taste unbelievable!

feb 2010 pure2raw blog 304 That’s it for that recipe, so simple you just need a bowl and a good fork ;)

Next recipe is our Cheezy pepper nacho sauce

Again a very simple recipe with a little twist in it! We added some of our roasted kabocha squash to it as well :) And let me tell you this brought the sauce to a whole new level, a little bit of sweetness for the squash! YUM!

Best idea ever for guacamole! kabocha squash is amazingly diverse! And really, what could be better than squash and avocadoes??? Nothing… (at the moment).

I love this one:Cheezy pepper nacho sauce
And that you used 3/4 c of nooch! That rocks. When I see people use 2 Tbsp, it’s like what’s the point. I am the same way as you when I make sauces with it…lots!
