Guacamole

I've been on this guacamole kick lately, which includes polishing off the whole bowl in one sitting. Jim helps eat it, but it's become quite the obsession. Below is a quick and easy recipe that I've been using. Jim hates tomatoes so I use fresh salsa instead...I can get away with that. Feel free to use a small diced tomato though. We just can't get enough! Enjoy!

1 large or 2 small avocados
1/2 lime
1/2 small red/yellow onion, minced (a large shallot would also work)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. fresh salsa
1-2 tbsp. Frank's RedHot
a handful of fresh chopped flat-leaf parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Peel the avocado and place the halves into a bowl. Using a fork or potato masher, mash the avocado until smooth (leave it a little chunky if you prefer). Squeeze the lime over the avocado until all the juice has been squeezed out. Add in the onion, garlic, salsa, RedHot sauce, salt and pepper. Mix together and serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
