    When you say red pepper do you mean red bell pepper? 

  18. This is a great basic recipe! Served it to some friends and they loved it. I did add some jalapeno pepper, and some ground cumin (personal taste) and instead of sugar used agave nectar. Thanks! This will be a regular healthy item in my fridge!
    It does keep surprisingly well for a couple of days in the fridge, the avocado does not go brown with enough lime juice, although it gets a wee bit smushy.

  19. Wow! Another great recipe of yours. Thanks for sharing again. I’ll definitely try this on our Saturday dinner.

  20. Looks amazing but jow long does it keep in fridge.. a couple days or do you need to eat same day?
