Authentic Southwest Guacamole

Otis Mehlberg - Thursday, December 09, 2010

2 ripe avocados
1 lime or lemon, juiced
1/2 red onion, course chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
4 roma tomatoes diced
1 big handful fresh cilantro, finely chopped, if desired
1 TBSP Basiks at Home™  Authentic Southwest Blend

Halve and pit the avocados, save the pits. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon into a mixing bowl. Mash the avocados with a fork, leaving them somewhat chunky, drizzle the lime/lemon juice over avocados. Add the remaining ingredients, and fold together to gently combine, put pits back into bowl (this will help keep the guacamole from turning brown). Pinch additional Basiks at Home™ Authentic Southwest Blend on top for greater flavor.  Lay a piece of plastic wrap right on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
