I Love Guacamole!

I'm not sure if there is anything nature provides that is more perfect than the Avocado. Sure you may argue that the banana is perfect or a beautiful beefsteak tomato--but the truth of the matter to my taste buds, is that the avocado has them beat, hands down.

Not only is it delicious, but it is versatile ( great chopped up in salad, spread over a toasted bagel, grilled or in guacamole) and SO good for you (did you know that they help to regulate blood pressure, and help prevent macular degeneration in your eyes??!!)!  I just wish they were available locally!

My family gets tired of hearing "I LOVE guacamole" every time we have it--let me know if your family gets tired of hearing it too...

I Love Guacamole, Guacamole
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 small tomato, finely chopped
juice of 1 lime
1-2 avocados, depending on how much you want to make
pinch cumin
1 tbsp chopped cilantro 

Cut avocado in half, and scoop out flesh.  Squash gently with a fork and add all other ingredients, mix until well combined and the texture is how you like it.  ( I like mine a little chunky--with the avocado not too mushy).  Keep the pit in your guacamole until ready to eat, it helps it to not oxidize as quickly. 
Enjoy with any mexican meal or just tortilla chips!
