Beauty Guacamole

Ingredients

2 medium avocados

1 medium garlic clove, chopped very finely

Cayenne pepper, to taste

Juice of ½ a lemon

¼ tsp. Celtic or HimalayanSea Salt

1 cup chopped tomatoes

avocadoDirections

Slice the avocados lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out the green avocado flesh and add to a medium-size mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice and mash the avocados, using a fork. Make it as smooth as you like, or if you like your guacamole chunky, then don’t mash too much! Add the garlic, sea salt and cayenne pepper and mix well.

Add the chopped tomatoes last and mix well again.

Enjoy the guacamole with veggie sticks as a filling, wonderful afternoon snack during or serve the guacamole on top of a large green salad for a great lunch or dinner.
