OH DEAR... GUACAMOLE

You could feed me a stick if it were slathered in guacamole, or anything avocado for that matter. Today, I decided that we are going to have taco salad for lunch, which cannot exist without some fresh guacamole. My kids are not too keen on jalapeno-type of heat, so we had to forego that for this recipe and replace it with a bit of smoke. It makes this recipe more Tex-Mex than truly Mexican, but we are all happy nonetheless.

Ingredients:
1 ripe avocado, peeled and mashed
2 Tbs. red onion, finely minced
1 Tbs. lime juice
2 Tbs. cilantro
1 tsp. garlic, minced
3 dashes of smoked paprika
¼ tsp. salt
¼ cup tomatoes, chopped
 
Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve. Mmmm… my guacamole hankering is satisfied.
