This is a quick, incredibly simple and delicious recipe that I make all the time. If you love avocados or guacamole, you will definitely enjoy this one. It can also easily be adapted according to your tastes. Like I tend to only use one jalapeño cause the heat makes it a little less refreshing and sometimes I add corn. You can totally omit or add ingredients as you see fit. I notice that my skin always looks great when I'm eating alot of avocados.
