GUACAMOLE

Homemade guacamole is a pleasant change from the unappealing kind most restaurants serve -- the key is to devour it immediately, before it turns brown.

    2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, more or less to taste
    2 small vine-ripened tomatoes
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (optional)
    1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (optional)
    4 chopped scallions (optional)

In a bowl, mash the avocados until they are smooth; there shouldn't be any lumps. Stir in the garlic salt and then add the tomatoes and any of the optional ingredients. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or any Mexican dish.
