Guacamole is one of these things you either really like or you hate! I happen to really like it! If you have never made it fresh at home, you have missed out, because it is so fresh tasting and delicious! It's also a snack that's much healthier than some other dips and spreads. Avocados are so full of good things for us! Here is what you will need for this fresh tasting Guacamole:
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and diced
juice of 1 lime or lemon
1 tomato, seeded and diced small
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced fine
2 Tbs. minced Jalapeno pepper (optional for a spicier version)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
2 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
Place the diced avocado in a bowl and mash with a fork or I used my potato masher and it goes quicker. I like to leave it a little chunky.
Add the juice of 1 lime or lemon and stir.
Dice the onion very fine. I used my Pamper Chef food chopper thingy. Seed and dice the tomato and if you are adding jalapeno, mince it. Add to the avocado mixture with all of the seasoning and stir to blend it all together!
Place it in a festive bowl and serve with tortilla chips or veggies!
