Who doesn’t love guacamole?!?!?  I found this recipe in The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook.  This is the same cookbook that I used in my foods lab last semester; it’s great and has tons of awesome recipes!  I copied the recipe directly from it because I followed their exact directions.  Hope you enjoy this delicious recipe and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

1 medium tomato
2 medium avocados
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
½ small onion, minced
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 4-ounce can chopped mild green chilies, drained
Fresh coriander leaves (optional)  [I didn’t add any]
Potato chips or fresh vegetables  [I chose to serve it with tortilla chips]

1.  Peel and dice tomato.  Then, cut each avocado in half lengthwise; remove seed; peel.
2.  In bowl, mash avocado with lemon juice.  Stir in salt, tomato, onion, garlic and chilies.
3.  Spoon into medium bowl.  Garnish with coriander if desired.  Serve with potato chips.
4.  Enjoy 🙂
