2-3 Avocados
1 Lime, juiced
1/2 t Salt
1/2 t Cumin
1/2 t Cayenne pepper
1 Garlic clove, minced
1/2 Jalapeño, seeded and minced
1/2 Red onion, of medium size and chopped
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 T Fresh cilantro

Directions:

1. Cut, core, and scoop avocados into large bowl.
2. Add lime juice.
3. Mash and mix together until chunky smooth.
4. Add salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Mix.
5. Combine jalapeño, red onion, and garlic.
6. Fold in tomatoes and fresh cilantro.
7. Serve immediately with your favorite tortilla chips or store in the fridge until ready.

 Additional notes:

– Chunky smooth is when the majority of the avocado is smashed up to form a smooth paste with small chunks of avocado pieces visible.
– Two large avocados or 3 medium avocados will combine perfectly with these measurements.
