Porque es el cinco de mayo


It's so simple to make a good guacamole that I tweeted my recipe earlier today. But it'll only be good if you use the right ingredients. To wit:

2 avocados
1 Roma tomato - not those big-ass, flavorless beefsteaks - seeds removed, diced
1 small onion or 1 - 2 green onions, chopped
1 jalapeño, chopped, with or without seeds and vein (I prefer to keep all that in)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (for me, the more the better)
juice of 1 lime
a little salt to taste

Mix it up, go to town. Repeat as necessary.
