Classic Guacamole

Knock knock, is anybody still out there? I wouldn't be surprised if all of my followers have stopped coming, I can't believe it's been close to 10 months since my last post. My baby girl (who turned 1 on June 27th!) has kept me a lot busier than I ever imagined, and my blog just got put on the back burner. Now that she's becoming more content and playing on her own more I thought it was time to start getting back to some things that make ME happy, my blog being one of them :) Get ready for some yummy recipes rolling out weekly! I'm going to start off with a classic guacamole recipe, I've really grown to love guacamole and this recipe is just how I like it, simple and delicious..enjoy!

3 Ripe Avocados
1 Roma Tomato
1/4 Cup Red Onion, finely diced
1 Teaspoon Lime Juice (fresh is always best, the bottled stuff was all my store had in stock)
1/8 Teaspoon Cheyenne Pepper (add more if you like, I prefer mine very mild)
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt

Run a sharp knife along the whole outside of your avocado and take both sides and turn it and then pull them apart. I like to stick my knife a little ways through the pit and then turn my knife and the pit usually comes right out. Score the avocado halves and then slide a spoon around the edge and your avocado chunks should fall right out into your bowl. I like to use a potato masher to break up my avocados before I add anything to them (you don't want to mash up your onion and tomatoes), mash it up depending on how you like your guacamole, I like mine slightly chunky. Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly, then cover tightly with plastic wrap, make sure you press the plastic wrap directly down onto the guacamole to prevent it from browning. Chill at least 2 hours.
