Guacamole!

Guacamole. Is there anyone that seriously doesn’t love guacamole?

Because I do. I literally make guacamole like 3 times a week!

So here is my own recipe of Guacamole.

**Note: I don’t actually take specific measurements, I just throw it in there till it looks and tastes good**

Ingredients 

4-5 Ripe Avocados (or as many as you want)

1/4 C – Minced Onions (I don’t use too much, feel free to add more)

1/3 C – Diced Tomatoes

2 T -Lime Juice

1/8 Tsp – Garlic Salt (Or garlic powder if you prefer. **I start with a little because it can be strong. Add more if needed)

*You can also use things like jalapenos, cumin, onion powder, cilantro, red onions instead of white, a combination of pico de gallo or salt and pepper. You can’t really go wrong with this recipe!

Instructions 

1st – Cut the avocado out of its skin, take the pit out, and throw it into a bowl to be mashed!  In this picture below, I used 3 1/2 avocados. Make sure to take the brown or bad parts out.

2nd – Mince up some onion, however much you want, and throw it into the bowl.

*As you can see, I didn’t use the whole onion. I used about 1/4 of a cup.

3rd – Chop up some tomato, not too much, and throw it into the bowl.  This is not the best picture in the world, but that is how much I used. Could have used some more though!

4th – Put some lime juice in there. For this amount I used about  1 1/2 T. My husband and I like it really limey so we use a lot. And, if the avocado isn’t quite ripe enough I would use a little more to give it some more flavor.

5th – Garlic salt. This can be over powering so be careful on how much you use. If its a larger batch I use maybe 1/4 Teaspoon.  ** You can use garlic powder as well. The salt will give it a really bright tasting flavor!

6th- Mash it all up!! Then taste. If its not to your liking, add a little more of whatever you like in there!

Dip it with a chip and you’re good to go!  I forgot to take a picture of the end result so here is a fake one, haha!
