Cilantro Lime Guacamole

This guacamole was fantastic for Chili's Tortilla Soup.


Recipe from: Craftaholics Anonymous

2 Ripe Avocados
1/2 fresh Lime
3 Tablespoon Diced Jalapeño pepper, I used ground up Jalapeño powder I made from dried Jalapeños
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Black Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4Cup Cilantro, chopped {about 1/4 bunch}

Remove the peel and pit from each avocado and place in a medium bowl. Gently mash with a fork, leaving it a little chunky. Squeeze the juice and some pump from one lime onto the avocados. Then sprinkle on salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Stir well. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Then fold in cilantro and jalapeño peppers. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.
