Chunky Guacamole

Our homemade guacamole is such a flavorful dip or appetizer, and is extremely kid-friendly! Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, and they contain high levels of healthy fats that keep you fuller in between meals (so that the kids won't come back 5 minutes later complaining they're still hungry!).

 4 ripe avocados
 2 medium size limes (4 small limes)
 2 medium size ripe tomatoes, diced
 ½ onion, chopped finely
 4 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
 1 bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
 1 jalapeno (seeds and ribs removed unless you like it spicy), chopped finely
 Salt and pepper to taste (season liberally)

Cut avocados in half and remove the seed. Spoon out the flesh of the avocado in a bowl.


Squeeze lime juice into avocado bowl.


Add onion, garlic, and jalapeno to the avocado bowl.


Use a masher to mash to avocado (be sure to do this when the lime juice, onion, garlic and jalapeno are in the bowl with the avocados.)


Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly.


Taste the guacamole and season accordingly with salt, pepper and any additional lime you may want to add.


Serve with chips... enjoy!
