“Oh my goodness, this is a great recipe. I always make it with my SUPER, IMPRESS MY FRIENDS dinner combination. The Cilantro-Lime Rice and Tequila-Orange Shrimp posted by me. Everyone raves afterward! The more the juices of each dish mixes, the better. Once on a vacation I didn't have a blender so I minced everything and it really works in a pinch. This is a Martha Stewart recipe.”
1/2 avocado
