Homemade Guacamole



If you know me at all, you know I LOVE me some Mexican food. Tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, taquitos... All of it. But there's one thing that really makes a good Mexican meal, and that, mis amigos, is fresh guacamole.

This recipe is so stinking good, you could really just eat it by the spoonful. (I...er... might have.) But it's amazing with cantina thin tortilla chips too. Or scooped onto a chicken taco, or a black bean tostada, or, well, anything, really. 

Note: I don't know why, but this stuff spoils very quickly, even refrigerated in a sealed container. It won't last longer than a day or two. But you'll probably eat it all before then anyway. 

Ingredients

2 ripe avocados 
1 medium roma tomato, chopped
Juice of 2 limes
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of dried cilantro
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper

Directions

Pit and peel the avocados, then place them in a bowl. Add the lime juice, onion, Greek yogurt, garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Mash everything with a potato masher. With a spoon, gently mix in the tomatoes. Refrigerate and enjoy! Makes about 8 servings.
