Homemade Guacamole

So this guacamole is literally the best guacamole out there.  I'm not just saying that 'cause it is my own recipe, I'm serious people, it is THE BEST. Every time I go to a mexican restaurant I order guacamole, you know, to compare mine to theirs.  To my disappointment, it is either flavorless, too mushy, or just plain and boring.  My guacamole, on the other hand, is FULL of flavor, chunky, and absolutely delicious.  With only a couple ingredients, it is one of the best apps you can put out on the table.  ENJOY!

9 avocados, pitted and mashed
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/2 red onion, diced
2 limes, juiced 
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional- I did not use one this time)
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

In a bowl, take the flesh out of all of the avocados and mash together with a fork, keeping the avocados chunky.  

Add the garlic, cilantro, onion, jalapeno and lime juice to the avocados.  Mix together, keeping the guacamole chunky.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Once the guac is to your liking, cover with saran wrap and press the saran wrap down so it touches the guacamole.  You do not want any air between the wrap and guac.  This will keep it from not turning brown.  Refrigerate to chill, then serve and enjoy!

(The best thing about this guac is you can add whatever you want to it- if you like it spicy, add more peppers if you want it with tomatoes, add some! This is your turn to be your own chef and the possibilities are endless!) ENJOY!
