Not your Mother's guacamole. Unless your Mother makes really awesome guacamole. Then I guess it's possible.

(Note: This was not intended to be a food blog.  When I started this blog way back when, that was not my intention.  However, I love to cook.  And my official Google research shows that recipe blogs are among the most visited, right after the kinky sex blogs.  And that ain't gonna happen. So eat some guacamole and keep your mind out of the gutter.)

Good, I mean REALLY GOOD, guacamole is difficult to find.  I once spent an entire summer traveling from Mexican restaurant to Mexican restaurant in search of guacamole that wasn't runny, or brown, or bad.  Actually, I didn't do that.  Whatever.  But I love guacamole, and since avocados are about $12 each right now, you can't afford to make a bad batch.

5-6 ripe avocados (They will feel slightly squishy, but not mushy.  Yes, there is a difference.)
4 Roma tomatoes
1 small red onion
salt & pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
juice from 1/2 lemon

Halve the avocados, take the pit out, and scoop the good part out into a bowl.  Dice the tomatoes very finely, toss 'em in the same bowl.  Chop the onion.  I like big pieces, but if you're not so much on the onion flavor, you can chop 'em up tiny.  Add salt, pepper, cayenne and lemon juice.  Then, take your potato masher and go to town.  Smush it all up good, until it is the consistency you like.  That's it.  You're done.
