Easy Guacamole

Guacamole has always been a favorite party snack for me, and my go-to when I can't think of anything better to bring to a party. Now that summer is around the corner, I've been getting away from the hot and cheesy comfort dips and opting for fresh and healthy appetizers when entertaining. For years I have been meaning to measure and figure out exactly what my guacamole recipe is. Most of the time I'm guessing, throwing in things that I have in the fridge already. Last weekend I finally wrote down exactly what I did when I made a good batch! Our Farmer's Market opened last Saturday so the chips & salsa are from a local guy. They are to dieeee for.
Easy Guacamole
-3 ripe avocados
-1 medium, ripe tomato, diced
-1/2 fresh jalapeño, chopped
-fresh cilantro, to taste
-1 tsp. chili powder
-1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
-juice from 1/2 lemon
-juice from 1/2 lime
-1 clove of garlic, minced
-2 tbls. diced red onion
-salt & pepper, to taste
I like chunky guacamole so I just mash it all up with a fork. If you like it really spicy or hot, you can add more jalapeño and cayenne. Sometimes I put a couple dashes of hot sauce in, depending on the crowd that I am making it for. Enjoy!
