Best Guacamole EVER.

this is seriously the best guacamole i have ever had. it's an easy and fast recipe and it's sure to make you feel like you bought it fresh from a mexican restaurant! did i mention it's easy?!

mince half a red onion, a handful of grape tomatoes, and about a 1/4 cup of cilantro. i didn't really measure the ingredients carefully, but i aimed for equal parts of red onion and tomatoes with less cilantro, but it really does depend on personal preference so measuring doesn't matter too too much.  

i then cut half a jalapeno and took out the seeds and the membrane so it won't burn off anyone's taste buds. then i minced it up and added it to the bowl. 

i added juice of half a lime

and then i cut up one avocado in half and immediately squeezed lime juice over it to slow the oxidation process so the avocado won't turn an ugly color. make many cuts horizontally and vertically in the avocado and then spoon out the avocado out of its skin. then add it into the bowl and mix everything together!
once i mixed everything, i added a couple of shakes of cumin, some salt, and pepper. 

then i had a crazy idea. i saw that i had sharp cheddar in my fridge so i busted out my heavy duty blowtorch and melted the crap out of it. 

rawr fire! it was rather difficult taking pictures of melting the cheese without burning it (or the rest of my apartment, for that matter).  

it was so freakin' delicious!! i think the cumin brought everything all together and the salt just added that extra oomph of flavor. simple spices make everything taste super righteous!

Ingredient List
1 whole avocado 
about 1/2 a red onion
about 1/2 cup of tomatoes 
about 1/4 cup of cilantro
juice of half a lime
