Super Easy Guacamole

You will need:

1 avocado

1 roma tomato, finely chopped

1/2 of a small red onion, finely diced

cilantro, to taste

sea salt, to taste

freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Lime or lemon juice

Optional: 

1 small bell pepper, finely diced

1 jalapeno, finely diced, with seeds (if you want a little kick)

 

What to do:

Chop your veggies, and place in a medium bowl.  Save the lemon or lime juice aside, for now.

Half the avocado, remove the pit, and scoop the avocado into the bowl.

Mash the avocado up as smooth or as chunky as you like, making sure to mix all the other ingredients in together. 

Drizzle the lemon or lime juice over the mixture, not only to enhance the flavor, but also to keep the guacamole from turning color.

Additionally, you can place the avocado pit in the bowl and mound the guacamole around it in order to keep it from turning color.

Garnish with cilantro leaves, if desired.

Give the guacamole about 15 minutes for the flavors to blend, if desired.  Serve with tortilla chips as soon as possible.
