Hi Foodies, do you love avocados? I love avocados but I really feel like they are over rated. Ok, maybe over rated is not the word but I bet some of you know what I mean. Yaani 3 days do not pass without me seeing a meme somewhere about how amazing and life changing avocados are, LOL. But to be honest, avocadoes are quite awesome right?

Eat them with githeri or rice, or just plain with salt or sugar, I love mine with sugar they are awesome. One of my fav ways to have avocado is in guamole. Now guacamole is not kachumbari with avocado, it kinda is but not really. It defers in some basic ingredients and method if doing it. Plus it is much tastier.


Watch the video of how to make it below. The recipe is below that.
