1 ripe avocado (should give a little when lightly squeezed)
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/4 rounded teaspoon salt
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons diced tomato
minced jalapeño, to taste (optional)
1. Peel avocado, discarding pit and shell.
2. Place avocado in a small bowl and add lime juice and salt, mash into a paste.
3. Add garlic, cilantro, tomato, and jalapeño, if using, and carefully stir until combined.
TIP: To peel an avocado, score in half lengthwise (you will be cutting around the pit) and twist both sides to separate. Holding one of the halves in your palm, use a spoon to scoop out the flesh of the avocado. Repeat with the other half and discard the pit and shells.
Source of recipe: Having gone on a huge guacamole kick, I had some at a local restaurant that I just had to recreate at home. This is what I came up with!
