Homemade Guacamole!

I dont know if it's because it was St. Patty's day this weekend, but I'm feeling the need to post something green! A couple weeks ago I was on a Mexican food kick and decided to have a full Mexican meal complete with guac, salsa, and enchiladas! I'll post the recipe for those someday soon. For now, here is a super easy recipe for some homemade guacamole that everyone will love. You dont have to worry about it turning brown because it wont be around that long =)

What you'll need:

2 avocados
2 roma tomatoes (or 1 cup diced tomato)
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 jalapeno
1 lime
salt & pepper (i used cayenne pepper)

(to make things easy, Trader Joe's usually sells guacamole kits with all needed ingredients!)

Cut avocado to the center, cutting around circumference of fruit to the pit.
Remove pitt and scoop avocado out into a medium sized bowl.
Peel and dice the onion and garlic cloves and fold into avocado.
Combine with diced jalapeno pepper.
Add the juice of 1 lime (juice it good!) and fold into guacamole.
Add salt and pepper to taste

Once you mash the guacamole to a consistency that you like it's ready to scoop!  ¡buen provecho!
