Fresh Guacamole

Along with the recent post about homemade queso, I decided to also do a recipe for guacamole. Everyone has their own recipe for guacamole, but sometimes people don't. I know I've had homemade and store bought recipes that I just didn't enjoy too much. This recipe was really fresh, which is what I love about guacamole, and avocados are considered a super-fruit and have great benefits!

This recipe is in honor of Cinco de Mayo! I found it on All Recipes, and what's great about a recipe like this is that you can change some of the ingredients if you need to! Enjoy!

3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
1 lime, juiced
1 tsp salt
1/2 C diced onion
3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)

In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
