Had never tried guacamole until recently. My mother made me try hers which was like a guacamole salsa, very delicious. But I wanted something smoother and read several recipes for guacamole. After getting the basics for making guacamole, I mixed together what I loved and this is perfect! So much flavor and very addictive!

Add lime juice to the mixture and mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
Top with chopped tomatoes and mix lightly.Viola! Newbie Guacamole!
