"My mom makes the best ________ [fill in the blank]." 

My mom makes the best guacamole. Maybe I think that because it's the first guacamole I ever tried, and it just stuck with me. Or maybe it really just is the best. :)

Guacamole is good and good for you. I like to seize every opportunity to consume it, whether at a Mexican restaurant or a party or just ask a snack at home. It's so easy to make. Here is my mom's recipe.

4 ripe avocados
2-3 ripe tomatoes, diced
1 small sweet onion, chopped
1/4 c lime juice
3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
salt to taste

Mash the avocados with a pastry blender or fork. Mix in the other ingredients. Leave a couple avocado pits in the guacamole to keep it fresher. Serve with tortilla chips.
