Guacamole

I make guacamole anytime I find good avocados at good prices. It's easy too make and always a crowd pleaser. My sister Gina has been waiting for this recipe, she really likes it. The trick is finding the right avocados. You want them to have some give, but not be too soft. I typically use whatever onion I have on hand, but green onions or shallots are my favorite.

Guacamole

3 ripe avocados( about 1 1/2 lbs), peeled and pitted
2 plum tomatoes, seeded
1 jalapeno, seeded
3 green onions, chopped (1 shallot, minced)
juice of 1 lime
2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp. kosher salt

Mash avocados to desired consistency with a fork( I prefer mine a little chunky). Add the rest of
the ingredients and mix well. Serve with tortilla chips. If you need to refrigerate, place plastic wrap over and push down to make a film over guacamole.

Can't help but add a small clove of garlic to my very similar recipe.

Delicious, and low carb if you use as a dip for veggies instead of tortilla chips.

Mmmmmmm, guacamole.
