Good, ripe avocados make all of the difference in the world for good guacamole, so make sure they are ripe when you are about to use them in your guacamole. They should just give a little when you push into the skin. If they are too hard or soft, it just won't make for good guacamole!
Guacamole (adapted from Rachael Ray's Garlicky Holy Guacamole)
2 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 of small yellow onion, minced
1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro, rinsed, dried and copped
1 small plum tomato, seeded and chopped
1 tsp. salt
Half the avocados around the seed, remove the seed with a knife and use a spoon to take out the flesh to put into a Tupperware container or bowl. Squeeze lime (more may be needed if the lime doesn't give off enough juice) into bowl. Add garlic, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, tomato and salt. Mash us the mixture with a fork to desired constancy. I prefer a chunky guacamole, but others prefer smooth consistency (just mash for longer to make it smooth).
Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
