Mary’s Zesty Guacamole
(makes 2-3 servings)
3 Avocados from Mexico
1 clove of fresh garlic
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
the juice from 1/2 of a lime
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp mustard salt
4 olives chopped
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until it hits the desired consistency. I like my guacamole fairly smooth but many prefer it a bit lumpy.
