The BEST Guacamole...

Matt and I tried this guacamole at Dos Caminos, a restaurant in Las Vegas.  It was sooooooo good that I asked my waiter for the recipe, and he gave it to me.  It is so fresh and so yummy, you will probably want to make it all summer's that good.  Enjoy!!

2 Tbsp Cilantro Leaves, finely chopped
2 tsp yellow onion, finely chopped
2 tsp jalapeno peppers, minced
2 large ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
2 Tbsp Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice (bottled is just fine)
Kosher or Course Salt to taste

Place the cilantro, onion, and jalapeno in a medium sized bowl and mash it with the back of a spoon.  Add avocado, tomato and lime juice and mash all ingredients together, don't mash the avocado too much, I think it tastes yummy with some avocado chunks in it.  Adjust seasoning as necessary.  (When I made it last night, to be honest, I just threw all the ingredients together and mixed it all up, I don't think the two steps are necessary).

You can add more jalapeno if you want it a bit spicier, and I add about twice as much tomatoes because I love tomatoes.  I usually add just a little bit more cilantro too, it makes it taste so fresh.  YUM!!
