Homemade Guacamole

Guacamole is something that I like best HOMEMADE...the store bought stuff taste fake and processed to me. This is one of my favorite recipes for Guac...its tasty, has a little bit of a kick to it and makes for the best dip or topping around!! We eat ours with corn chips or nacho's or as a topping on any Mexican feast...its the BEST!

Homemade Guacamole

6 RIPE (but NOT rotten) avocado's
     *** BEST way to check and see if an avocado is ripe, pick off the button on top, if its green your 
      avocado is good, if its not...your avocado is not good! WORKS EVERY TIME!!
2 limes, juiced OR 4 T. lime juice
1 t. salt
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. cayenne
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
4 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 c. sour cream

In a large bowl place the avocado and lime juice, mash and stir. Add salt, cumin and cayenne. Mash and mix. Stir in onions, tomatoes, garlic and sour cream. Cover and let sit for 30 minutes to an hour before serving...this helps the flavorings to "marry". Serve with your favorite chips or Mexican dish!
