I totally forgot about the blogs after making my intro post until today. In light of my frustration today at the grocery store over store bought guacamole I decided that I'll share how I usually make my own and it's very quick, easy but also carries a great amount of health fats to put into your diet. Check it out!

4 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tomato, diced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 jalepeno diced (optional)

Pit and halve avocados and scoop out flesh into a mixing bowl. Mash avocados with a fork, leaving it still a bit chunky. Add remaining ingredients, gently mix. I do use the jalepeno because I like the extra spice but some people can't handle it.
