Guacamole

4 Haas avocados
1 Roma tomato, diced
2 T. red onion, chopped
2 T. fresh cilantro, chopped
1 T + 1/2 t. fresh lime juice
1/2 t. hot pepper sauce
1/2 t. salt



Cut the avocados in 1/2 and pull apart. Remove the seed in the center and scoop out the avocado meat. Place in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and combine with a fork until almost smooth, but still slightly chuncky. Taste and adjust as necessary: I made this recipe using three avocados (2 medium, 1 small), so I adjusted the amount of herbs and onions to my taste).



Chill in the refrigerator, covered with saran wrap. Place the saran wrap directly onto the guacamole.



Serve with tortilla chips and/or vegetables (sliced cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, etc).
Makes about 2 cups.
