New Mexico Magic

In three and a half weeks we’ll be in our new home. In the meantime, we are as patient as humanly possible, making do in our tiny rental kitchen, and adjusting to living at a higher altitude. We're indulging in freshly mashed guacamole laced with lots of lime and sweet cherry tomatoes.

We’ve been slinking into art openings with the calm detachment of non-featured artists and enjoying the mixed eclectic bag known as the Santa Fe art scene– wondering how, when and where we’ll fit in. If at all.

And of course, I am dreaming of my new cocina. And rustling up platters of green chile enchiladas and Thai peanut stir-fries. The kitchen sports copper counter tops and birch latilla doors. There are hand painted accent tiles embedded in the thick adobe walls. Classic New Mexican style.

I am sipping a lime-laced iced green tea as I write, and contemplating just what color my new Kitchen Aid mixer should be (having sold my old custard yellow beast at our estate sale back on the Cape). I’m leaning to cobalt blue today; as the hand painted accent tiles feature a blue bird-like design that reminds me of why I love this high desert country, its deep and penetrating miles of skies, and air that sparkles with the hair-raising urge toward flight into unknown territory.

Karina's Easy Vegan Guacamole Recipe with Lime + Sweet Cherry Tomatoes

Posted June 2006.

This guac is as easy as uno, dos, tres. So simple. No onions. No salsa. Nothing fancy. It is clean, creamy and fresh tasting- and laced with plenty of lime.


2-3 ripe organic avocados
1 garlic clove, minced
10 sweet cherry  or grape tomatoes, quartered
Juice from 1 large juicy lime, more limes for garnish, if desired
Finely chopped fresh cilantro, if desired


Halve and pit the avocados. Using a soup spoon, scoop out each avocado into a bowl. Grab a potato masher and smash the avocado. Add the garlic and lime juice and mix until smooth (or leave it chunky, if you prefer). Stir in the tomatoes; reserve a few for garnish on the top.

Serve immediately with gluten-free organic corn tortilla chips.

Best served fresh.

This super easy guac is mucho tasty as a condiment to quesadillas, enchiladas, omelettes and frittatas, and other southwestern and Mexican-inspired dishes. See my Gluten-Free Goddess® collection of my favorite Santa Fe + Mexican inspired recipes.

Serves 4.

I wish you the best in your new home in NM. It looks so beautiful. My place is very small, almost live on my patio and love working in my flower/&/herb beds.

Love the recipe for guacamole, plan on making it to take to the church potluck this coming Sabbath.

Never thought about freezing avocados. Can you share the easiest way you've found to do this? (: Thanks!
