This guacamole recipe is absolutely amazing! It can be used as a dip with veggies, a topping for burgers, or eat it straight out of the bowl. My family loves it! And how fun the giant avocado pit is, showing off, sitting on top of the dip? I got that idea from a dear, late friend of the family, Jose Rodriguez-Mayor. Except he would triple the recipe and put 3 pits in it. Here’s to you in heaven, Jose!

2 ripe avocados*
1/2 lime
2 tsp chopped garlic
1/2 diced tomato
2 tbsp cilantro leaves
salt to taste
avocado pit for garnish

In a mixing bowl place the scooped out flesh of both avocados, the lime juice, garlic and cilantro leaves. Use a wire masher to smash the avocado and mix the other ingredients together until desired consistency. Add the chopped tomato and combine. Transfer guacamole to a serving bowl and place the pit on top!

*to get the pit out whole, cut avocado in half across the fruit. Pull apart both sides (the pit will stay on one of the sides). Carefully strike a kitchen knife into the pit and wiggle it until it comes out easily.
