There are tons of guacamole recipes out there but this is the version we've found to be our favorite.  It is adapted from many other recipes to suit our taste.  The spices really give this guacamole some zip!  Salt is an essential ingredient because it brings out the flavor of the avocados, tomatoes, and onion.  


3-4 avocados (save 1 or two of the pits!)
2 small tomatoes or 1 very large tomato, diced 
1 small red onion or 1/2 large red onion, diced
1/2 c cilantro, chopped fine (just eyeball it)
1/2 tsp coarse salt (sea salt or kosher salt)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
3 T lime juice

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash together.  I like my guacamole chunky, so I just give it a rough mash with a fork.  And that's it, you're done!  If you want it smoother, you could mash up or blend the avocado before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients.  Throw 1 or 2 of the avocado pits into the bowl of guacamole.  This will help keep it green and fresh or up to 2 days after making it.
