Homemade Guacamole

I was down in San Antonio for work this past week and one evening we went to have dinner at Boudro's on the riverwalk.  The food is awesome and I have been craving fresh guacamole ever since... it is not hard to make at all and it is so yummy!  (although the prep works took longer than I thought... those cursed peppers...)

Sorry I don't have a fancy salsa / guacamole bowl for presentation... but who cares!! it's the taste that matters...

1/2 lime
1/4 orange
1 tsp salt
1 avocado
2 tbsp of diced fire roasted yellow and red bell peppers
2 tbsp of chopped onions
2 tbsp of chopped cilantro

*Obviously you are not going to go through all the trouble just to get 2 tbsp of everything... just store the peppers, onions, and cilantro separately and add avocado when you feel like having a fresh bowl of guacamole.

I actually bought 2 red and 2 yellow bell peppers, roast them while I was chopping everything else (3 small white onions, purple taste better but white is all I have at home, and 1 bunch of cilantro).  When the peppers are backened on the outside, I just peeled the skin off, took the seed out and diced them...

1.  Squeeze lime and orange.  Add salt.
2.  Spoon out the avocado and casually dice it into bite size.
3.  Add peppers, onions, and cilantro. 
4.  Mix and serve.

*If you want more of anything, do that.
