Holy Guacamole!

I was all Iron Chef making this guacamole and was whacking the avocado seeds with a big knife and yanking them out. It was exciting. I did not make the salsa but I did make some Pita Chips! Which are highly addicting and delicious with everything, especially guacamole. Seeing as how there is no guacamole left I will definitely be making this recipe again.
(Alton Brown, Food Network)
3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (omitted because I didn't have any)
1 clove garlic, minced
1. In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. 
2. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. 
3. Then, fold in the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. 
4. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.
