Creamy Guacamole

Avocados were on sale this week at the grocery store, and since I am a total impulse buyer when it comes to food, I bought 2. They have been getting more and more mushy all week, and today I realized that it was now or never. So I made some guacamole to go with my chili (of which I have approximately one vat left), and it turned out great! The beauty of guacamole is that you can do everything to your own taste, which is what I did, and I think it turned out to be quite delicious.

Creamy Guacamole

2 ripe avocados
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/8 tsp. onion salt
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 cup diced tomatoes (optional - I didn't have any on hand, but I'd suggest using them)

Mash the avocados and mix until creamy, and then add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Chill until ready to serve. Stir before serving.
