Karen's Famous Guacamole

2-3 ripe avocados
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro- pull leaves off and chop coarsely
1/2 small white onion, chopped
1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt (or to taste)
1/2 lime- juice only

Dice the avocado.  Add lime juice, diced tomatoes, chopped onion, and chopped cilantro to diced avocado.  Add salt to taste.  Mix ingredients together.  I like to mash some of the avocado, but leave some big chunks of avocado in the guacamole.  Serve with tortilla chips or vegetables.  Or you can top your taco tostado, or burrito with guacomole.

This recipe can be altered to your taste.  Add more or less of anything.  I have a group of friends who come over for Taco Tuesday and I have to alter this to fit their tastes and dietary restrictions.  One is allergic to onions.  One doesn't like tomatoes.  And, one doesn't like cilantro. So, when they come over, it ends up being mashed avocado! 

If you are making this for a party.  Double the recipe and put the avocado pits into your bowl along with the guacamole.  It will keep your guacamole from turning brown.

Here's a tip for cutting avocados:  Cut avocado in half, remove the pit.  Use your knife to do a crosshatch pattern. Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado into your bowl. When you scoop it out, it will come out as diced avocado!  If you want to make slices, just cut straight lines and scoop it out.  Nifty trick!
