Go-to Guacamole

The summer of my sophomore year of college I worked as a traveling Bible Camp counselor in Southern California.  Our teams were based out of Manhattan Beach, CA where we stayed on the weekends.  Each week we lived in the church of a different city from Santa Barbara to San Diego and ran their vacation bible school program.  We were responsible for our own meals and this guacamole dip was a regular in our diet.  It is a basic recipe, creamy and a little spicy and chock full of tasty tomatoes and red onion.  Enjoy with chips or in everything from tacos to burgers.

3 ripe avocados
1/2 large red onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, finely diced 
1 tsp. diced fresh jalapeño (seeds removed)
1/2 tomato, seeded and chopped
juice of 1/2 lime (or lemon)
1/4 tsp. salt (plus more to taste) 

Peel and mash avocados well in a large bowl.
Add all the rest of the ingredients.  Add more salt to taste.
Serve immediately so it stays bright green.
