Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
about 4 - 5 avocados. The more the merrier. Make sure they are ripe, soft to the touch, but not too ripe. If they are black inside, they are too ripe. If they are hard and you can not mash with the back of a fork, they are not ripe enough.
4 - 5 cloves of garlic
4 - 5 plum tomatoes, ripe
bunch of fresh cilantro
1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Mince the garlic and place in large bowl. Cut the ends off the tomatoes, then slice lengthwise. Then, using a teaspoon, remove the seeds and the insides of the tomatoes. Dice the tomato skins that remain into small pieces and add to the bowl. Take a nice handful of the cilantro and chop into pretty small pieces. I love the taste of cilantro so I use a fair amount. Place this into the bowl. Then add the avocados. I usually slice them in half, remove the seed, and then spoon out the insides into the bowl. Add the juice from one lime. Then, using a knife and fork, I mash up everything in the bowl. Salt and pepper to taste. I use the guacamole soon after I make it. It does not last long. It may last a couple of hours in the frig. If you need to store it for a short while, place the guacamole in a bowl and cover with Saran wrap. But actually press the wrap right onto the guacamole so no air can get to it. It will blacken quickly.

I make this all the time for parties and it is a hit! Serve with blue or corn tortilla chips.
