The perfect Dip - Guacamole


3 Ripe Avocados
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tomato, finely chopped
half teaspoon salt
half onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons, freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Cut Avocado in half and remove the stone/seed. Scoop out avocado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl, then mash into a chunky paste, leaving some pieces intact. Add the chopped onion, black pepper, lime juice, salt and Cayenne pepper and mash some more. Be careful handling the peppers; wash your hands thoroughly after handling and do not touch your eyes or the area near your eyes with your hands for several hours. Learnt that the hard way.
Keep the tomatoes separate until ready to serve. Cover with plastic wrap or cling film directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation from the air reaching it. Refrigerate until ready.
Just before serving, add the chopped tomato to the guacamole and mix.
 I LOVE this dip. Its best when served with tortilla chips.
 Perfect for entertaining guests at a party because it is easy to make, delicious and healthy.
