3-Ingredient Guacamole

From the blogs I've read this week, it seems most of the food bloggers out there are mostly excited for the Super Bowl because of the associated food.  I'm not that into the teams this year, but I'm still very excited for the game.  Maybe somewhat because of the food?  Definitely for this guacamole.
I'm rather particular with guacamole.  In that, I don't want you messing with those avocados too much.  We don't need packets of "guacamole seasoning", and don't even try to add cheese to this.  No sour cream either!
We only really need a few ingredients!  Ripe avocados, fresh lime juice, and a tomato get mixed together with a little salt, and we're good to go.
4 avocados ought to do the trick, yes?  Mash em up with half of the lime juice before we add the tomatoes.
Seeds and inner ribs removed, tomatoes diced and added to the mashed avocados.
Taste tests required along the way!

We need a little green brightness in our food in these cold winter months.  We can't always subsist on root vegetables and casseroles :-)
Guacamole
4 ripe avocados
Juice of 1 lime
1 medium tomato, ribs and seeds removed, chopped
Salt to taste

Halve avocados and remove pit and skins.  Mash avocados in a medium bowl with 1/2 of the lime juice.  Make it as smooth or as chunky as you'd like.  Add the chopped tomato and about 1/2 teaspoon salt, and stir.  At this point, use a chip (or whatever vehicle you'll be using to eat the guac) to taste test.  Add more lime juice or salt as needed.  I ended up adding the rest of the lime juice to mine, but depending on the saltiness of the chip, you don't want to over-salt the guac.

Enjoy!
