With yesterday being Cinco de Mayo, I decided to make my go-to Guacamole recipe to include with our dinner and to snack on while dinner was cooking. Guacamole is a favorite snack of mine, which could have to do with it being made out of avocados- MY FAVORITE!
It is so simple to make, and tastes great, and a perfect plus- it can be added to many different meals, or just be made to have as a snack, or a dip to bring to any summertime BBQ or picnic.
2 Clove Garlic- minced
2 Avocados- scooped out, but save pits
Half onion- diced
1 Tomato- deseeded and diced
1 Jalapeño pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
*1 teaspoon cumin powder
*1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* Optional- Personal preference for spicy foods
Mash avocado and garlic in bowl.
Add onion, tomato, and jalapeño pepper. Mix until all combined.
Add salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne. Squeeze lemon juice on top and mix together.
Add pits from avocados to help keep from guacamole from browning, and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve! Enjoy~
When you make your own foods you will know exactly what you are putting in your body. It is so easy and simple to make this that you will never need to buy the store bought, sodium filled, made with ingredients you can not pronounce ever again!
