Guacamole with fresh tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, and lime is the true way to make this mexican dish. But in the middle of winter when there is very little fresh produce, you need a hack to still enjoy Mexican Night. Adding homemade Taco Seasoning Mix to your mashed up avocados is an inexpensive and delicious way to still enjoy great guacamole.
Place the avocado on the cutting board then cut through and around the avocado lengthwise. Remove the pit with a spoon. With avocado on the cutting board, make 1cm slices through the flesh to the skin. (It's tempting to cut the avocado nestled in your palm but it's not worth it when the knife goes through the skin and slices a tendon in your hand. Cut the avocado on the cutting board!)
Turn the avocado 90 degrees and make 1cm slices through the flesh in the opposite direction.
With a fork or spoon, pick up the avocado in your palm and scoop out the flesh while applying slight pressure to the skin.
