Best Basic Guacamole

What you need: 

1 lime, divided
2-3 medium sized ripe avocados
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. In a medium sized bowl, squeeze enough lime juice to cover bowl (just so avocado will be in contact with the lime juice). Scoop out the avocado and place in the bowl.
2. Add the garlic, and the rest of the lime. Squish the avocado mixture with a fork until it is to your desired texture (I like mine pretty smooth).
3. Add the tomato, salt, and pepper, and mix. Taste and add more salt or pepper if needed.
We love it on bean and rice tacos, or just with baked tortilla chips!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

this is pretty much how i make my guac, but i havent ever lined my bowl with the juice, is there a reason for it? i'd like to know. thanks for posting it!  I <3 Guacamole! ;)b

Well, I just started doing it so that when I put any avocado in there..it would keep more of its green color. Since it's in there..while I'm chopping up other things. I don't know that it makes THAT MUCH  of a (or any?) difference, but hey..why not?! I've noticed that my guac always has a brilliant green color, and stays that way for a long while (until it's all gone). So, maybe try it and see if you can tell a difference. I really love fresh jalapeño and basil in there too. It's my new default way.
