2 ripe Hass avocados

1 tomato (vine ripened is best)
2 garlic cloves - smashed and finely chopped

1/4 c chopped cilantro

2t - 1T lemon or lime juice (to taste, I prefer lime)

salt (to taste, start with a small amount, and then add more if you wish)
pepper (to taste)
chipotle pepper (to taste)
(optional) 1/4 c onion chopped

(optional) small amount of jalapeno pepper chopped
(optional) small amount of your favorite salsa

combine ingredients in a small bowl

serve with chips, bread, or tortillas

The best part of making your own, is that you control how much salt is in it. Restaurants want their food to always taste good and hence add too much salt.
