Guacamole and Tomatillo Guacamole

I LOVE guacamole, in fact I have never met anything with avocado I don't love.  I found a recipe for a lighter version guacamole, so I made it and my regular favorite and asked the ladies if they could tell which one it was.  It was actually hard to tell it was really good!

4 avocados
juice of 1-2 limes, to taste
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1 medium red onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4. tsp. pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 tsp. cumin
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

Mash avocados and add remaining ingredients.

Lighter Version--  Tomatillo Guacamole
3 avocados
2 tomatillos
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1 Tbs. lime juice
2 cloves garlic
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

Combine avocado and tomatillo in blender and blend until smooth then stir in remaining ingredients.
Salt and pepper, to taste
