In a bowl, mix/mash together avocado, diced onion, garlic powder or fresh garlic, cilantro (optional), lime juice, red pepper, salt, and pepper.
Once mixed, toss in diced tomatoes (red or yellow).
For this specific guacamole, I used the Tastefully Simple guacamole mix (1/3 pack) with the (1) avocado. This stuff is addictive!! I'm not usually a fan of box mixes, but this specific seasoning tastes so good that I just can't resist. I use the mix as instructed on box, although I usually add an extra avocado for parties, or cut the mix part back if I need a smaller portion. Then I add fresh onions, tomato, and cilantro.
Serve flax seed, or quinoa chips on the side. Fun to serve with mango salsa, too (recipe coming).
