Tomatoless Guacamole

With the 4th of July festivities already upon us and BBQ's galore on schedule I've finally posted my tomato-less guacamole. All ingredients are to taste, add more or less for the desired flavor and hotness. Just make sure to make a bunch cuz this goes super fast!

Tomatoless Guacamole (served with Tropical Carnitas)
Makes ~2 Cups

3 Medium Avocados
1 Lemon (juiced)
2 Garlic Cloves (minced) or 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1-2 Jalapenos (diced) or 1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
3 Tbls Onion (chopped) or 1 Tsp Onion Powder
1/2 Red Bell Pepper (diced)
Salt & Pepper to taste

-Cut up and mash avocados in a bowl.
-Add remaining ingredients and mix in.
-For best flavor, let sit 30 mins but can be enjoyed right away!

NOTE: all spices and lemon are to taste. I like a lot of lemon in my guac, but others may not so start with 1/2 a lemon first then add more as you like it. Same holds true for the jalapeno/cayenne, just add as much of this 'heat' as you like.
