Home Made Guacamole

So easy and delicious. This simple dish has gotten me more amazed compliments than anything else I've ever made. I shouldn't even share how simple it is, but everyone deserves to reap the accolades of home made guacamole!

My recipe varies based on what peppers and ingredients I have on hand, but here's the basics:

Ripe avocado, red onion, garlic, jalapeno and/or chili peppers, lime - and tomatoes if you like.

Chop the garlic, onions and chilis in a small food processor until very finely chopped.

Open the avocado and remove the pit.

Scrape the avocado flesh into a bowl with a spoon and then mash it with a fork.

Add the juice of one whole lime and plenty of salt.

Add the minced onion, garlic and chilis and mix.

Serve immediately if possible or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate. The lime should keep it from browning for a few hours.

Serve with tortilla chips, chicken fajitas, fish tacos, taco salad, or anything you like. Double or triple the recipe with several avocados and more chili and lime and watch your friends go bananas for it!
