No Good Guacamole Goes Uneaten

Last night Rob and I went to see Wicked. By far one of the best musicals I have seen live. This is the last week it's playing in Chicago so it was a must see. After watching a green witch running, dancing and singing about, it inspired me. I had a taste for....guacamole. If you like simple, this recipe is for you. I want to start by saying that guacamole can be easily adjusted depending on your specific taste. For example, if you don't like tomatoes just don't put them in. If you like a lot of onion then use more onion. It's all up to you. This is the way I like it, so you can start from there then add or subtract any amount you desire.


3 avocados
1 lime (juice)
1 plum tomato
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tbs chopped white onion
1 tbs finely chopped cilantro
1 tsp salt


Pit, peel and mash the avocados in a bowl until they are chunky. Add the lime juice and salt. Chop the remaining ingredients one at a time and add. I prefer the garlic, onion and cilantro to be finely chopped. Dice the tomato and stir all ingredients together. Cover and put it in the refrigerator for at least an hour. I think that it tastes better the second day so make it the day before if at all possible. Then eat it with these. They are the best tortilla chips ever! Serve this when guest come over and let me tell you, you'll be so popular:
