fresh guacamole

I have been meaning to put this recipe here for months now!
I am finally getting around to it today...
On our 15th wedding anniversary Brett & I went to San Antonio, Texas & ate at the most fabulous restaurant on the river walk. There they served guacamole that was freshly made at your table. It was LIFE CHANGING. Neither of us were huge guacamole lovers until this moment.
I've been making a copy of it ever since!
the ingredients:
1 ripe avocado
1/2 orange
1/2 lime
1 roma tomato diced
2-3 Tbsp. onion diced (preferably red- but I didn't have a red one here)
2-3 Tbsp. salsa
chopped cilantro to taste ( I really love cilantro so I add a lot)
kosher salt & pepper

Dice the avocado to the desired size & place in a bowl.
Add freshly squeezed juice of both the lime & orange; stir gently.
(the juice is hardly noticeable, but then makes all the difference... how is that possible? It's true, trust me!)
Next, gently add the rest of the ingredients then- salt & pepper to taste.

Serve with chips or on tacos- whatever you like.
Seriously this is so good & so easy.
I always double & sometimes triple recipe.

I have been druling over this recipe for a week now and finally made a mini batch (I say mini cause I ate it all in one sitting, so it wasn't really a whole batch right?)... your right, have to double/triple it. Soooooo Yummmmmo!!!
