IntroductionMy favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.

Number of Servings: 8
1 lemon, juiced
2 T chopped cilantro (leave out if you don't like cilantro)
1 small tomato (plum or roma)
1 jalapeno, seeds and white ribs removed (that's where most of the heat is)
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 small white onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Mash avocado and lemon juice with a fork until fluffy and creamy. Chop cilantro, tomato, peppers and onion. Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Allow to rest an hour or so before serving so flavors mix.

I used lime instead of lemon, 2 minced garlic cloves, cracked black pepper, 1/2 tsp. chili powder, only 1/2 the jalapeno, no bell pepper, and 1/2 tsp. crushed cumin seed, all ingredients coarsely chopped instead of mashed and creamy...this made it closer to what I usually make as my standard...yum! - 9/5/08
i make this with just a few changes, i use lime juice, red onion and leave the seeds in the jalapeno, b/c my hubby and i like the spice. but i never have put in green pepper, i will next time i make it though, upping the tasty veggy quotient sounds like a good way to go! make this if you love guac! - 1/30/09
