Homemade goodies are healthier and tastier than store bought. PERIOD!
I don't care what anyone says but to me there is nothing like better than sitting down and enjoying one of your favorite snacks or treats when you know exactly what went into them, and know that it's full of delicious fresh ingredients.
One of my favorite treats is Guacamole and I've tried quite a few, some are good, some not so good and some just plain dreadful, but through all the trying, I finally nailed it by just adding what I wanted and seeing what would come of it.
4 medium avocados, halved, seeded and pulp removed
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp cumin
2 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 roma tomato, chopped
1 tsp kosher salt
Place the pulp from the avocados in a bowl, squeeze the lemon juice over and using a fork mush it all up. You can leave it chunky or smooth, it's up to you, we prefer smooth, so I really mash it up with the fork.
Add the chopped garlic, tomato, cilantro and the salt and cumin. Mix well.
I then spoon the guacamole into a tupperware container, cover it and let it sit for about 30 minutes, then serve.
If you're not going to be eating it soon after making, then place in the refrigerator.
