Homemade Guacamole

Today was a beautiful sunny day in California. My BF made a trip to Costco and came home with 5 large ripe avocados and asked for guacamole. My baby wants baby gets guacamole (reference to movie The Breakup here..)

So here's the quick and delicious recipe:

2 large ripe avocados, mashed**
1 tomato chopped
1/4 onion chopped
1/4 bunch of cilantro chopped
1/2 lemon juice
3 garlic heads diced
salt to taste

Mix it all together together, chill for about an hour and serve up with your favorite tortilla chips, or over tacos, or just spread over toast for lunch.

If you want to be everyone's hero, try making your own tortilla chips. Just cut up corn tortillas into triangles and follow the homemade tostada instructions. Don't forget to sprinkle sea salt over them as soon as they come out of the fryer.

**Tip to mash the avocado just perfectly...use a molcajete!! Just place the peeled avocado in the bowl and start mashing away. You can even use the molcajete as a bowl for your guacamole.

It was a perfect snack with organic tortilla chips and margaritas out in our patio.
