Easy Fresh Guacamole Recipe

My youngest daughter loves cooking and spending time in the kitchen.  I can boast that she has learned a lot from me--but, I can't take all of the credit.  She is simply amazing at putting together ingredients into a new recipe or into an improved version of an old favorite.  Homemade, fresh guacamole is her claim to fame during the spring and summer months in our family.  This easy, fresh guacamole uses her go-to recipe and is a family favorite and a frequent potluck request.  I use this recipe for a quick and easy side dish for almost every picnic or bbq all summer!  What is my favorite recipe for homemade guacamole?

Instructions for our Fresh Guacamole Recipe

Mix the Guacamole Ingredients.  In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the mashed avocado and lime juice.  Mix to combine.  Add the onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, garlic and cilantro--mixing again to combine the ingredients evenly.  Add the salt, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper.  Mix thoroughly and chill tightly covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Serve.  We use this guacamole recipe as both a dip with warmed tortilla chips and as a condiment for taco night!

Notes:  Taste the guacamole before chilling--it may need some extra salt or extra jalapeno if you prefer more spice.  We also find that some fresh lime juice is just a bit sour.  We sometimes add a dash or two of Stevia to take away any bitterness from the lime if needed.
