Holy guacamole!

I love guacamole! Not the store bought stuff, nothing but the real thing. I love my guacamole smooth, not chunky. In fact, I would love to have some right now!
  • 3 avocados, peeled, pitted and mashed
  • juice of 1 lime (not lemon)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • freshly chopped cilantro
  • 2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
Mash the avocados with the lime juice and the salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Cover with cling film and refrigerate 1 hour to make all the tastes come together. Keep the pit in the guacamole, to prevent it from discoloring.
Serve with tortilla chips, salsa and sour cream. Or spread it on toast or crackers!
Avocados are good for you. They contain healthy fats and nutrients. You can have avocado in a salad as well. Enjoy!
