Perfect Guacamole

Who doesn't like a little guacamole? 

Easy to make and super delicious, guacamole can be one of the healthiest items on a snack table at a party. Using a recipe from my sister, I modified the recipe to add some heat to the guacamole by adding jalapeños to the mix. Plus, I am a big fan of chunky, which is one reason why I love this guacamole.


3 ripe avocados
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion 
1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced (more or less, to taste)
1 clove garlic, minced (more or less, to taste)
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp lime juice (or juice from one lime)
1-2 Roma tomatoes, diced

Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Spoon the flesh of the avocados into a mixing bowl. Add the onion, jalapeño, garlic and salt. Combine. Add the lime juice and stir gently, just until ingredients are mixed. Stir in diced Roma tomatoes.

Keep the pits of the avocados in the guacamole until served to prevent the guacamole from turning brown.
