Fresh and Easy Guacamole

I woke up this morning with a hankering for some guacamole. Or perhaps I just wanted chips and I needed and excuse to eat them. Either way, I had some ripe avocado on the counter so I just quickly whipped this up!

A few years back I would have never tried to make guacamole because I thought it was so hard! That was until I visited Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville in Cozumel. They make it to order right in front of you! So I intently watched them make it table side while I was slugging back my third margarita and realized I could do it at home. A few ingredients and BAM it's like you're own little Mexican fiesta in your mouth. 
And if you're like me and don't eat guacamole with anything but chips, try making your own oven baked chips!

Ingredients
3 Ripe Avocado's
1 Shallot (or 1/2 red onion) chopped
10 Cherry tomatoes (quartered) OR one large tomato
1 Clove of garlic
1/2 Lime juiced
1/2 tbs chopped cilantro
Salt/Pepper to taste


Mix it up!
This is the easy part! Just scoop out the avocado add it to the bowl. Chop up tomatoes and shallot, mince garlic, juice the lime, sprinkle salt/pepper and cilantro and mix it all up! If you like it chunky then don't mash up the avocado as much. If you like it creamy then keep smashing them until you get to the consistency you like!
