“Copy Cat” Las Delicias Guacamole

Fresh, Healthy, Delicious, Stick to your Ribs DIP!

Guacamole is in itself incredible. Las Delicias in Memphis takes it a step further. This family owned, authentic Mexican Restaurant is infamous around the 901. With little to no decoration and located on a street corner in a questionable part of town, the environment is definitely not what brings people in! It’s the food. They know how to do mexican food! And at a good price!

My family goes almost every weekend (you think I’m exaggerating!) and Mitchell and I are always sure to make it a priority when we are home!

We start out with guacamole and cheese dip. The guac is to die for. It’s very chunky and requires a spoon to pile a helping on each chip… You have got to have it. If you’re in Memphis, or within 50 miles, GO! And if not… do what we do. Fake it til you make it.

No recipe involved. All it takes is avocado, tomato, and onion chopped. Toss the chunks (Avocado-measuring about a square inch/Tomatos & onions diced small) in your most festive bowl… dust with cilantro if you’ve got it…spritz with some fresh lemon and lime too!

(To that I say- GOOD LUCK!)

You’ll be saying holy guacamole by the 2nd bite!

Back to Basics: Skincare

I used to be the girl who used all of this when it came to my skincare routine…

In my head, “I was trying everything. Nothing worked….” Maybe because I also believed more scrubbing/exfoliation would lead to better skin.

Boy was I wrong! Finally, I thought, better try what I never had before… less effort. less extras. less scrubbing! (GASP!)

Let’s simplify…

These borings have changed my skin- for the better! Yes, I even use off brand!

Makes me wonder in what other areas I need to relax & get back to basics…

One product I know I have shared with you before is Ponds Cold Cream. It is amazing for makeup removal! Soft on the eyes & has an amazing smell! It is the 3rd product to round out my daily skin regimen and I don’t see that ever changing!
