This is the perfect time of year to put avocados in just about anything. Although they might not look great at the store, I find that by the time I bring them home and wait about 24 hours they are perfect! And they're only 50 cents a pop. They're tasty on salads, sandwiches, in homemade ice cream (if you live in latin-america) and as guacamole!

4 ripe avacados
½ bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped
½ small onion, diced
Juice from 1 lime

Mash fresh avocados. Add fresh cilantro, onion, and lime juice. Salt to taste.
*Depending on your texture-likings, you may want to blend the cilantro and onion or food process them so that the guacamole is smooth. I don't mind the contrast, but some people do.

*Secret to keeping guacamole green instead of brown (1 the lime helps) but also, if you save the pit from an avocado and place it in the guacamole when you store it, the avocado will preserve longer.
