This is one of my favorite dips and it’s a great crowd pleaser. A great addition to any party menu, this recipe makes about 2 1/2 cups of the best guacamole you’ve ever had!

What you need:

8-10 medium, ripe* avocados mashed with a fork or potato masher
juice of 1/2 a large lemon
2 – 3 tablespoons of Mrs. Renfro’s green salsa or other mild/hot green salsa (Mrs. Renfro’s is the best!)
2 – 3 large cloves of garlic minced
1 1/2  – 2 teaspoons of red onion minced
1 medium vine ripe tomato finely diced
dash of kosher salt (about  ¼  teaspoon)
dash of freshly ground black pepper (about ¼ teaspoon)

Mash avocados in a big bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and stir.  Serve with your choice of chips or add as a condiment to dinner.

*A perfectly ripe avocado is one that is soft enough that you can squeeze it, but not overly soft (caves in when you squeeze) which means that it’s gone bad.
