Guacamole

I’m toying the idea of a cake: Lemon Poppyseed with an accent of Raspberry or Something Jam or Preserves or Jelly. That will have to wait for another day. Today, I have guacamole!!

It’s really simple, but I didn’t realize how much I love it until I made it myself. I usually keep mine chunky, because I feel like it highlights all of the really good ingredients put into it.

Chunky

Guacamole

1 (or 2) avocados
1/3 (or 1/2) red onion, chopped
1/2 (or 1) T lemon juice
1 (or 2) small, from-the-vine tomatoes
1 (or 2) t ground cumin
optional: jalepeño, small and chopped very finely, seeds removed for less heat

Chop onion and tomatoes. Split avocado, remove seed, cut the avocado while still in the skin, and scoop out chunks with a spoon. Add lemon juice, cumin, and chopped jalepeño, (if you’re using jalepeño).

Mix together, squishing some of the avocado chunks, if you’d like. Enjoy.

The parenthetical amounts will serve about four hungry people armed with tortilla chips while the lesser amount is good for about two.
