A while back, we went to On the Border with the family and they ordered chips and Guacamole.  I decided to be brave and try some. I normally hate avocados.  Its a texture thing.  I loved it!!! I've never been able to find one that I liked since.  I tried to find a recipe that had in it, the same things that I remembered from the restaurant.  I found a few recipes and then created my own from it.  I like the different textures and flavors mixed in with it, rather than just avocado. Still not a huge fan of avocados. But, this recipe is helping me adapt :)  My husband absolutely loved it though! 


2 small avocados peeled and seeded
¼ cup cilantro (chopped fine)
½ tsp cumin
Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 tomato diced fine
½ tsp onion powder (more if desired)
1/2 tsp garlic powder (more if desired)
1 1/2 tbsp lime juice

Smash avocados with a fork and add all other ingredients.  Mix well. Serve immediately. 

Tip:  Avocados go brown pretty quickly.  The lime juice will help preserve it longer than normal. This is not a make ahead dish. It needs to be made as close to serving as possible.
