Veggie Guacamole...

Veggie Guacamole... I know that guacamole is quite easy to do. Really, there's not much to it... you just need some good quality avocados. Sometimes I like to add a bit more veggies to it...I just feel it is a bit more healthier:). This is what I did in this post. You can add seasoning to your taste...you can substitute some orange juice for the lime, if you like. It will be something a bit different. If you don't have any cumin, don't fret. Skip it all together and it will be just fine. Of course, if you have your own favorite guacamole recipe that you like, you can just make yours:). I wouldn't mind at all...actually, sometimes it is good to stick with some tried and true version. But I would love to try your version, if you would like to share it:)....

You will need:

1 large hass avocado,large diced
1/3 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/3 cup tomatoes, diced
1/3 cup onion, diced
1 large jalapeno, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
Add to taste:
cilantro (I usually use about 1 TBS chopped)
cumin(I usually use a pinch or two)
lime juice

Dice avocado into large pieces and place it into a bowl. Cut bell pepper, tomato(es), onion and jalapeno into small diced pieces.
Mince the garlic clove...you could also use a garlic press. Chop cilantro. Add it to the diced avocado. Add juice of half a lime. Mix until combined and avocado is still a bit chunky. Don't overmix it. Season with salt, pepper, and cumin. Taste and adjust seasoning... add more lime if needed. Serve as a dip or a side to taco salad,etc.
