It always seems funny to me when people tell me my guacamole is amazing. I mean, it does taste amazing, but there’s no secret to it. It’s essentially just a bowl of fresh, yummy ingredients, smashed together to create a delicious orchestra of flavor. For just five bucks and fifteen minutes, you too can be the most popular kid at the potluck.

- To peel the avocados, slice them in half, lengthwise. Use a knife to carefully remove the pits. Use a spoon to scrape the flesh into a mixing bowl, making sure to get it all. Smash the avocado with the back of a large fork, leaving it slightly chunky.
- Gently stir in the onion, garlic, cilantro, jalapeño, tomato, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Adjust seasoning to taste.
- Serve or refrigerate covered immediately.
