My Favorite Guacamole

I know what you're going to say... I totally missed the boat on posting this for Cinco de Mayo. But here is my theory... EVERY day is a great day for guacamole. Thanks to the fact that our grocery stores pretty much carry avocados year round, you can make this yummy and nutritious treat any time the craving hits! The trick is keeping Avocados on hand in order to allow them to properly ripen. Avocados are best when the flesh yields a little if you squeeze them. If you buy them when they are hard, let them sit on a warm windowsill for a day or two, then stick them in the fridge until you are ready to use them.

After you taste this version, you'll never want to buy the pre-packaged guacamole again!

  • Avocados
  • Tomatoes
  • Lime
  • Cumin
  • Salt
Directions (so simple!):
Take two avocados, cut them in half, and remove the seed. Score the fruit in both directions, making little cubes of avocado, while still in the skin. Scoop the fruit out with a spoon and into a bowl. Discard any really dark areas. Add one tomato, diced. 1/2 tsp of Salt. 3/4 tsp of Cumin. Juice 1/2 lime and pour over top. Take a fork and mash and stir the ingredients until well-mixed, but still lumpy.

Serve with (my favorite) Garden of Eatin' Multi Grain organic Tortilla Chips.
