Ingredients:  
3 ripe avocados
2 roma tomatoes or 1 medium regular tomato with no seeds or juice

Directions:
Im going to tell you how to properly cut open an avocado first. Start by cutting the avocado from the top more narrow end to the bottom and back around. There is a HUGE seed in the center so you'll have to twist the two halfs apart and the seed will be stuck in one side. Take a very sharp knife and whack it hard into the seed. The knife will stick in the seed and you can twist the seed and it will come right out. Next score the inside meat of the avocado. Take a spoon and scoop out the meat away from the skin. Take a potato masher or fork and smash the avocado until your desired consistency. Traditional and the way I like it is chunky so you can still see chunks about the size of a dime of whole avocado. You can also beat with a mixer to make it creamy but I don't really recommend that.....you'll bruise it. Immediately add lemon juice. Avocado/Guacamole that has been let reach the air will turn brown just like a bananas or apple. The lemon juice will stop the browning process temporarily. Then add the rest of the ingredients and salt to taste. Serve in a bowl by itself with warm soft tortilla's or tortilla chips or on anything Mexican, fajitas, burritos, taco's....etc.
