Garlicky Guacamole

If you like avocados, you probably have your own recipe for guacamole already, but I wanted to share mine with you. The onion and garlic taste is very strong in this, which we like, but you can reduce the amounts of either or both if you are hanging out with people you don't know very well. :)

I like the mash the avocados with a fork instead of processing or pureeing them - I think it adds to the authenticity and it lets me control the consistency. Make sure to save the pits and place them in the finished product - I have good word that they keep the avocados from browning too fast. Use all the freshest ingredients too!

Garlicky Guacamole
from Colleen's Kitchen
Makes about 2 cups

2 very ripe medium Hass avocados, halved, pitted and removed from skin, cut into large chunks
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
few dashes of Tabasco sauce
pinch of Kosher salt
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 medium tomato, chopped

Place all ingredients except tomato in medium bowl; mash with fork until desired consistency. Gently stir in tomato and adjust seasonings as necessary.
