I'm not a huge fan of green foods with weird textures, so I've never really liked guacamole too much. This recipe, however, I like. It's super easy, and I like all of the healthy benefits of avocados!
2 medium very ripe avocados, halved, seeded, peeled, and cut up
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 of a 4 oz can of diced green chile peppers
1 Tbsp snipped fresh cilantro*
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1 medium finely chopped, peeled, and seeded tomato (optional)
Combine avocados, onion, chile peppers, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, and salt. Blend in food processor or mash together with potato masher. Make sure everything has combined well and mixture is smooth. If you are using tomato, do not add until right before serving.
*I've made this with and without the cilantro, and it's good either way
