Five Minute Meal: Homemade Guacamole Recipe

Is it just me or is the world suddenly obsessed with guacamole?! Maybe everyone has always secretly loved guacamole but just never really felt the need to talk about it and then one day some guy just decided to tell the world and immediately everyone raised their hand in agreement, what ever the case, it's clear that guacamole is a "fan favorite" for many.

I realize that technically guacamole isn't typically a meal, but for a week while I was still in college I lived off of free Chipotle guacamole coupons so ever since then it has been upgraded in my book from snack to potential main (and only) course. 

With that being said, it's probably worth it to learn this simple quick recipe in case you are a {insert noun or occupation here} and find your self in need of something quick and healthy to whip up fast.

Ingredients: Two avocados, half a roma tomato diced or 1/4 cup, 1/4 cup of white onion diced, 1/2 clove of garlic, very finely diced jalapeƱo pepper to taste, sea salt to taste, and cilantro to taste

Step 1: Finely dice tomato, onion, pepper, and garlic clove
Step 2: Carefully peel/ cut off the skin from the avocados
Step 3: Cut up the avocados into medium small size pieces
Step 4: Combine all ingredients into a bowl and begin to mash together (I like to use my mashed potato masher for this part but a serving spoon will also work)
Step 5: Season with cilantro and sea salt to taste.
