Gay Ol' BBQ Guacaliciousness

What was Avogadro's favorite food? Guaca - mole!
Oh so funny joke from 11th grade chemistry.

As promised:

Super-untraditional but none-the-less delicious Guacamole
5 ripe avocados
Juice of 2 limes
1/2 purple onion (or one small one), diced
1/2 c. cilantro, washed and roughly chopped
1 jalepeno, diced
Mash the avocados in a big bowl. Add diced onion, jalepeno, lime juice and cilantro; mix thoroughly. Add in 2 tsp or so cumin, 1 tsp cayenne and 1 tsp salt or there abouts to taste. Depending on how much juice you get from the limes, you may need more or less salt. Also, depending on how spicy your jalepeno is you may want more or less cayenne.

Lime is traditionally used as a preserative to keep the avo from turning brown, but I personally love the flavor, especially combined with cumin and purple onion. It should keep overnight if you need to make it in advance, but I highly suggest eating it right after you make it and not sharing it with anyone else.
