Shy's Guacamole

4 large ripened avocados
1 clove garlic
1 small lime
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 or 2 TBS. hot tomato salsa (your favorite brand)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
a couple grinds of black pepper
3 dashes tabasco sauce

Mash the avocado with chopped garlic, garlic powder, salt, pepper and your favorite chunky tomato salsa.  Pop the lime in the microwave for 20 seconds and then roll on the counter to loosen the juices.  Squeeze all of the juice of 1 lime into the avocado mixture.  Add in the tabasco sauce and cilantro & mash until combined.  I like to keep the guacamole a little chunky, so don't mash it until it is a puree.  Serve with chips or on tacos, chicken, or anything you'd like!   Leave one avocado pit in the guacamole to help keep it bright green.  If you need to store the guacamole, lay a piece of plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate; this will keep it from browning.

Wonderful, fresh and limey. Nice recipe...maybe a touch more heat if you're the spicy type. Otherwise, a wonderful treat with a Dos Equis.
