Holy Guacamole!

I really don't think there is any better snack than a bowl of fresh guacamole and some chips. I'm actually taking a break after I write each sentence here to eat some. :-)
Here's the recipe:

3 Ripe Avocados*
1 Lime
Cayenne Pepper
Ground Cumin
2 Roma Tomatoes (or 1 small vine ripened tomato)
1/2 small red onion
2 cloves garlic

*Avocados are ripe when the flish gives a bit when pressed gently, but is not "squishy."

Pit and peel the avocados. Juice the lime over the meat of the avocados to keep them from browning. Add salt, pepper and cumin to taste (start with 1/2 teaspoon of each) and mash. Chop cilantro and seed and dice tomato(es). Dice the red onion. Mince the garlic (or use a garlic press). Fold the cilantro, garlic, onion, and tomato into the avocado mixture. Let sit for 15 minutes so that the flavors meld together. ENJOY!

I think I made it three sentences without stopping to take a bite. My guac now feels neglected. So I'm going to get back to it.


  1. That sounds delicious! I am going to make it for taco night next week! Yum!

  2. Oh it is! I ate entirely too much of it. Haha. At least avocado is good for you!
