Almost Award Winning Guacamole

3 medium ripe avocados

¼ cup minced red onion

1 roma tomato, seeded and cut into small chunks

2-3 cloves of garlic, pressed through the garlic press

1 small jalapeno chile, minced

1/3 cup minced cilantro leaves

¼ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

generous ½ teaspoon ground cumin

scant ¼ cayenne pepper

3 tablespoons lime juice


Halve 2 avocados, remove pits and scoop flesh into medium bowl.  Add the garlic, salt, cumin, cayenne, most of the cilantro, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice and smash it all together chunky with a fork or kitchen utensil of your choice (pastry blenders or potato mashers both work).  Cut the remaining avocado into small chunks; then add that to the bowl, as well as the onion, tomato, and the rest of the cilantro and mix with a fork.  It should be well-combined and smooth, but still have some good chunks of avocado.  Season with salt to taste and the rest of the lime juice.
