Simple Perfect Guacamole

This is my wonderful friend Josie’s favorite guacamole recipe in the world, which makes me very proud because she has a very discerning palate (i.e. she's super picky;-). I like to let the avocado speak for itself and just kick it up a notch with a few additions.

Simple Perfect Guacamole
2 large ripe avocados, diced 
1 small clove of garlic, minced finely with ¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon diced onion (red, white, or scallions all work great)
juice of ¼ of a small lime
freshly cracked black pepper, about 20 turns
dash of cayenne pepper, optional
extra salt to taste

Mash the ingredients together and taste for seasoning. I like to leave good sized chunks of avocado for texture. Serve with tortilla chips, chili, or as a sandwich spread!
