Combine all ingredients except avocado and lime juice in a small saucepan and set over medium-low heat. Stir constantly for 3-4 minutes to blend flavors, being sure not to allow the vinegar to evaporate.
Set aside to cool. If you prefer smooth guacamole, toss the mixture in a blender and puree.
While tomato mixture is cooling, in a medium bowl, mash avocado well with a fork. Stir in lime juice, then add in vegetable mix and blend well.
Makes a great dip with tortilla chips, tastes wonderful smeared on tacos and burritos, and is excellent in a big Mexican salad!
