I don't think you can call this a recipe, but sometimes people ask me how I make guacamole. Maybe they think that I'm an expert, having lived in an avocado grove. Well, I never compliment myself, but my Friends say that my guacamole is simply divine. So, I will divulge my ingredients. I do wish I could tell you amounts, but, darling, I simply throw it all together. There is no measuring here.

some nice ripe avocados (like 2?)
finely chopped onion (maybe 1/4 of a medium onion)
fresh lime juice (go easy or the lime will be all you taste)
cilantro, finely chopped (a Tbsp?)
kosher salt
dash of cayenne pepper

Smash up the avocados in a bowl. Then mix in the onion, lime juice, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust for seasoning, using a chip. Try not to taste and adjust for seasoning until the whole bowl is gone. Share!! or don't :)

What do you put in your guac?

That sounds so yummy!
Having grown up near an avocado orchard, I have, of course, my own idea of how to make guacamole. I use 2 avocados, 1 roma tomato, 1/4 chopped onion, 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice - blend it in the blender and get out the tortilla chips. Oh, and make some salsa to go with it. Roma tomato, onion, cilantro, salt, a little jalapeno pepper if you want it. Chop it all up fine and let it sit so the flavors can dance. Get out the tortilla chips.
