Holy Guacamole!

We love guacamole at our house! It is a healthy snack that we’ve been loving lately with the avocados being on sale from the super bowl.  We are however guacamole snobs. This recipe is one my mom made up when they moved back from Mexico. It is just like what they have in Mexico. It makes me miss Mexico. I keep telling Ty we need to fly down just so I can get tacos from my favorite restaurant…one day maybe :)

Avocados (I used three for this batch, which was perfect for the three of us)
Lime juice (I used the juice from 1 ½ limes)
Salt, to taste
White onion, chopped finely, as much or as little as you want (I’m not a big fan of raw onion, but you have to have it in your guacamole, because it adds so much!!)
Tomato, chopped, as much as you want (again you have to have tomato)

Start by mashing your avocados in a bowl after you have taken off the skin and removed the pit. I mash them one at a time. 

Then add lime juice and salt. (The lime juice serves two purposes  1. It helps prevent browning, I’ve had some in the fridge for a few days and it’s still green!! 2. It gives a hint of lime taste in your guacamole.) Taste before you add the onion and tomato to make sure you have the right amount of lime and salt.

 Add the onions and tomatoes and give it a good stir.
