Super Easy Guacamole


Guac
I only recently discovered my love for guacamole a few years ago.  There’s a Mexican place that we love that makes the BEST guacamole I’ve ever tasted.  It is delicious.  Much to my dismay, I have not yet cracked the code to their recipe.  But, I did come up with this one that is really easy and pretty tasty. 
Unlike most guacamole eaters, I prefer to use it as a condiment rather than a dip.  I put it on just about any Mexican dish I eat. 

Guacamole is like ketchup—it goes on everything. 
My kids love this recipe.  It isn’t too spicy, so they have no trouble eating it.  Even my 8 month old has had a taste—and he ate it up!

My biggest trick to get my kids to eat this guacamole is to chop the ingredients very small.  This gadget helps me do that.  It’s an immersion blender with a bowl attachment that acts as a small food processor.  It is perfect for small chopping jobs like this.  I can not stand to drag out by big food processor just to chop a few things.  This really cuts down on my chopping time.
This recipe only makes a small amount.  You can easily double or triple it.
Ingredients:
1 ripe avocado
Pinch of salt
1 Roma tomato
1/2 jalapeño pepper
1/2 or 1/4 small white onion
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Lime juice
Instructions:
  1. In a small bowl, mash your avocado gently.  Add a some lime juice just to coat and stir it together.  .
  2. In a food processor, pulse your tomato, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro until it’s finely chopped.  Add it to the avocado.
  3. Add the cumin and salt.  Mix thoroughly.
  4. Let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour.
