Guac for everyday!

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
6
avocados (soft but not mushy)
2-4
garlic cloves, minced (depends on how much you like garlic)
1
lime, cut in half
1
medium tomato, diced
1/2
medium onion, diced
salt
chopped cilantro (optional)
1
diced jalapeno pepper (optional) or 1 diced serrano pepper (optional)
Directions
1.
Cut avocados in half, remove pit, and spoon into a mixing bowl
2.
Add minced garlic and squeeze the juice from half of the lime into bowl
3.
Mash the ingredients together to desired consistency using the back of a large spoon or a potato masher (some like the avocado chunky, some like it smoother)
4.
Fold in diced tomato and diced onion, a couple of pinches of salt, and the juice from the remaining lime half (also add cilantro or peppers at this time)
5.
Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes
6.
Uncover and taste
7.
Add salt as needed
8.
If you don't give the resulting guacamole at least 4 starts, then you ain't making it right (NOTE: the purpose of the lime is to allow any leftover guacamole to retain green color. Some people may use lemon, but it if too much is added it will really affect flavor, where as lime juice will just be tangy. If you find the leftover guac has darkened, simply stir and use more lime juice next time).
