Rachael's Famous Guacamole ... well almost ;)

In honor of Cinco de Mayo coming up around the corner I decided to share with you my "famous" guacamole!! There is nothing better than fresh guac, so get your pen and pad ready to right down this recipe!

(makes about 2-3 cups) 
3 medium ripe avocados 
1 lime 
1 tomato 
1 cup diced cilantro 
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 tbsp. minced fresh garlic
1 seeded and minced jalapeno 
Pinch salt and cumin 

In a large bowl, dice up avocado leaving one avocado pit to the side for later use. Next, dice your tomato tossing the seeds and add to avocado mixture. Add diced red onion, 1 whole jalapeno (leaving the seeds out will minimize heat), and the juice of half a lime. Add in your chopped cilantro and seasonings. Taste now to determine whether you need any extra seasonings. Reserve other half of lime for a fresh squeeze just before serving. Add pit into center of your guacamole to decrease browning (only if you're not serving right away).  Serve with freshly baked tortilla strips as shown in recipe, "Mexican Posole" further down in my blog. 
As you can see from the picture below, I used the guacamole as an addition to many other mexican favorites for shrimp fajita salads. Que rico!
