Cooking with Kelly: Homegrown guac

So I didn't grow the avocado. I don't even know if I can grow an avocado in Illinois, but that's another battle for another day.

Anyhow, with an overabundance of jalapenos and tomatoes, guacamole seems like a natural choice. Here's my downhome recipe:

1 avocado

6 cherry tomatoes

2 fresh jalapenos

1/4 of a small onion

Splash lime juice, the juice of half a jalapeno will do

Chop the onion finely, set aside. Halve the the cherry tomatoes. Finally, remove the rib and seeds of the jalapenos and finely dice. Wash your hands afterwards!

Halve the avocado, then dice inside the skin roughly. Scoop out the flesh, then sprinkle the lime juice on top. Mash all the ingredients together with a fork until fully incorporated.
