Guacamole

Prep time: 10 minutes
 
Ingredients:
 
6 ripe avocados (if they are not ripe and you have a few days place them in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana to speed up the process)
Juice of 3 limes
1 bunch cilantro (sometimes you may need more depending on the freshness of the herb
2 Roma tomatoes chopped
1 tsp. minced jalapeño
½ red onion minced (only put a little at a time in case your onion is extra spicy)
Salt to taste (1/4 tsp. is a good place to start)
Directions:
 
Remove seeds and skin from avocados.  (Hold onto two of the seeds if you want to save this for later. ) Add juice of limes, cilantro, jalepeno, onion and salt.  Mash together with fork until there are only small chunks of avocado left and taste and adjust any seasoning as necessary.  
 
If you are serving this later put the tomatoes aside and add right before serving.  To keep from turning brown until you serve place reserved seeds into mixture and then cover with either saran wrap or foil until they touch the actual guacolmole so that no air can reach your fabulous dip and place in refridgerator.
 
When you are ready to serve add tomatoes and remove seeds.  Of course you can serve this with tostita chips but for a healthier option leave some thin sliced cucumbers next to the bowl for anyone wishing for a healthier dipping option.
 
Avocados have gotten a bad rap but as being super fatty!  However, they are packed with healthy fat and are a great way to add flare, flavor, and good for you fat to any meal.  Avocados are actually considered a super food and are packed with 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They are most famous though for their appearance in guacamole as I am using them here.  
 
Happy and Healthy Eating!
