Guacamole Recipe

I don’t remember where I got this recipe, but I love it.

4 ripe avocados
1/4 cup thinly sliced grape or cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped
Coarsely chopped cilantro, to taste (I like about a teaspoon and a half)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Juice of one half lime- I grill it in a skillet (it enhances the flavor and warm limes produce more juice- it also smells heavenly)
1/2 teaspoon each cumin and chili powder (or to taste)
Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all the ingredients except the avocados, salt and pepper to give the flavors a chance to meld for a half hour or so. Mash the avocados with a fork so there are whole pieces of avocado and then gently fold in the other ingredients.

Mine is 6 ripe avacados, mashed, a can of drained, rotel tomatoes, and half of a medium onion, finely chopped, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, tsp of garlic salt, tsp of garlic powder, about 1/4 tsp of ground cumin and an equal amount of onion salt. Mix it all together, adding the herbs and spices to taste, chill for a bit in the refrigerator and serve with Doritos or plain corn chips. Great football dip that everyone likes. Sometimes, I add 1/4 tsp of curry powder, too.
