Fresh guacamole is one of our favorite things to eat. It is a both a healthy and delicious appetizer, snack, or spread/dip. …perfect dip to make for a summertime BBQ!
4 ripe avocados
1 red onion, minced (~1 cup)
4 Tbl. cilantro, finely chopped
2 Tbl. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. kosher salt
dash of pepper
1 ripe tomato, chopped
*optional: 1-2 serrano chiles, stems & seeds removed, minced (if you like the spice factor)
Scoop avocado in bowl and using a fork, mash. Add onion, cilantro, lime, salt, pepper and mash. Add chiles if desired. Keep the tomatoes separated until ready to serve. *NOTE*: When storing guacamole, place saran wrap DIRECTLY touching the guacamole in the refrigerator. This will prevent the guacamole from turning brown!
