All-Natural Guacamole

Whenever the weather becomes warmer, some foods just seem to taste better.  Avocados are one such food. Sometimes, there is nothing better than sitting outside and enjoying some good guacamole.  Sadly, however, not all guacamole is healthy, with many added ingredients and extra sugar.  Below is a healthy, all-natural recipe for delicious guacamole.  Even better, it is incredibly easy to make!  Feel free to experiment and add other ingredients, such as red peppers, chilies, or jalapeno.  Also, try fresh veggies (instead of chips) with it or use it on top of a taco salad.  Enjoy. 🙂
