The Perfect Guacamole

We know, you make guacamole , but never write down how much you add of this and that.  We were in the same boat until Barbara served it at a Pokeno party and had something down on paper for proof!   Barbara is a wonderful cook, but for now, I will share her perfect Guacamole recipe….that she found in a Southern Living book.   We are glad to get our hands on this.  The sisters love them some “guac”. 

6  ripe avocados, peeled
1/3  cup fresh lime juice
2  large tomatoes, chopped
3  to 4 garlic cloves, minced
1  tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/2  teaspoon salt
1/4  teaspoon pepper
  Garnishes: chopped red and yellow bell peppers


Place avocados in a bowl; mash, leaving some small pieces. Stir in juice until blended. Stir in tomato and next 4 ingredients. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; chill 30 minutes. Garnish, if desired.


Makes 4 cups
