Guacamole with Green Garlic and Cilantro

'Tis the season for green garlic. Which means: Make this.

4 ripe avocados
2 tbsp minced green garlic (or sub 2 small cloves garlic, pressed)
4-6 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Several dashes ground cumin
Cayenne or Aleppo pepper to taste
Pinch or three of salt

Coarsely mash the avocados in a bowl. Mix in half the garlic, most of the cilantro, and most of the lime juice, then add a couple dashes of cumin, a couple pinches of cayenne pepper, and a light sprinkling of salt.

Taste, and adjust all the proportions as desired. Cumin and salt will both help round out the flavor if it tastes thin, but note that you may want to under-salt (or taste with your chips) if you're serving with something salty.

Serve. Eat. Sigh. Resolve that you'll totally obviously definitely share next time. Right?

Serves 3-4.
