guacamole

It's finally stopped raining and feels like summer, so of course there has to be guacamole :)

2 avocados
(I prefer Haas avocados, those are the ones that look like they have monster skin)
2 T lime juice
2 T chopped red onion
1/2 t salt
1 - 2 garlic cloves, pressed

Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado from the peel into a large mixing bowl and mash it with a fork. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, mash a bit more, and refrigerate for about an hour before serving. If you prefer your guacamole on the creamy side, stir in a tablespoon or two of sour cream.

I cover my guacamole with the plastic wrap touching the surface; this keeps it from turning brown.

There are probably some hardcore guac fans out there who are wondering how I could possibly post a recipe that doesn't include cilantro. Well, I'm one of those unfortunate souls who has the supposed gene that causes me to taste soap instead of whatever delicious flavor you all claim cilantro has. At that is why cilantro just isn't welcome in my kitchen, or garden ;)
