September 16 is National Guacamole Day in celebration of the Independence of Mexico!
Traditional guacamole contains onion, chile peppers, cilantro, tomato and avocado, but why stop there?

1 large ripe avocado
1⁄4 cup minced white onion
1 lime, juice of
1 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
1⁄4 cup chopped cilantro leaf (or more, to taste)
1 jalapenos or 1 anaheim chilies or 1 hot new mexico chili, seeded and minced
Peel, seed and mash the avocado in a bowl.
Add all the other ingredients.
Serve right away, or refrigerate for a few hours after sprinking with some extra lime juice, then pressing plastic wrap
onto the surface (keeps mixture from turning brown).
