Gaucamole for Cinco de Mayo


Today I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes for Gaucamole. I am eating it with chips today. However, you can use it on tacos and it is delicious.

3 ripe avocados - peeled pitted, mashed
1 lime - juiced
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 cup diced onion[I like red onion]
1 teaspoon minced garlic [around 1 clove]
2 roma [plum] tomatoes - diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro [optional]

In a medium bowl add avocados and lime juice.
Mash with a potato masher till avocados are
mashed together. Add salt, cumin, cayenne
pepper, and garlic. Mash again till mixture is mixed. Add onion and tomatoes. With a large spoon fold in. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. Serve immediately. Yum!
