Quick & Easy Guacamole

This guacamole recipe entails a bit of "cheating" - using store-bought, fresh salsa - but because of that, it takes less than five minutes to throw together.  There are no measurements in this recipe - this one is make-by-taste.

Quick & Easy Guacamole
4 servings per avocado

1 fresh, ripe avocado
1 clove garlic, or to taste, minced fine
Fresh cilantro, minced
Juice of 1/2 lime
Ground cumin, to taste
Fresh, tomato salsa  I use medium heat. Choose whatever heat suits your tastes.
Salt and freshly ground pepper

1. Put avocado into bowl and rough mash with a fork.  I make criss-crosses in the pulp with a sharp knife before scooping it out - it makes it easier to mash.

2. Using a fork or slotted spoon, add some salsa to the mashed avocado. Mix. Add the rest of the ingredients.

 3. Taste, adjust seasonings. Refrigerate 30 minutes to let flavors blend. Before serving, taste and adjust seasonings again if necessary.

A bit blurry... but you get the idea.  :-)
