Step 1

Cut avocados in half, remove pit, and spoon avocado into a mixing bowl.

Add minced garlic and squeeze the juice from one-half of the lime into the bowl of avocado.

Mash the ingredients together to desired consistency using the back of a large spoon or a potato masher (some like the avocado chunky, some like it smoother).

Fold in diced tomato and diced onion, a couple pinches of salt, and the juice from the remaining lime half (Also add cilantro or peppers at this time).

Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.

Uncover and taste.

Add salt and black pepper as needed.
