The best guacamole ever for Taco Tuesday

I think we make the best guacamole ever and I am going to tell you how we make it.
It's soo soo good and fresh and makes your body feel good.
This recipe makes enough for the two of us but if we are having company we double it
for 2-3 more people and then triple it for 4-6 more people, etc.
I don't recommend making too big of a batch at the same time. 

Cut an avocado in half and scoop it into your favorite bowl.

 Squeeze half of a fresh lime and pour it over the avocado.

 Cut up a nice handful of fresh cilantro until it's nice and fine and add it to the bowl

 Cut up 2 cloves of garlic and 1/4 of a red onion and add them to the avocado
(I have no onion picture.  Don't be sad.)

 De-seed and then dice one jalapeno and throw that in too.  It's ok, it won't be too spicy.


Add a pinch of kosher salt and a good amount of fresh black pepper. 


 Now here is where our recipe might vary and one of the reasons that I think it's so good.
Don't add the tomato yet.
Mix all of that up really well by holding two spoons and smushing, chopping, stirring.
IF you really want to get crazy, and we do sometimes, use a hand-held immersion blender to mix all of that up and you will get smooth, creamy, awesomely mixed guacamole.
Either way, once it's nice and mixed, cut a tomato in half and get all the juice and seeds out of both halves.  Then dice the entire tomato up into nice little chunks and add it to the bowl.


 By stirring in the dejuiced tomato last your guacamole will just taste better.  I could wax poetic about why but right now I really need to go make some guacamole.
