Perfect Guacamole Recipe

Perfect Guacamole Recipe
1 Cut avocado, remove flesh: Cut the avocados in half. Remove seed. Score the inside of the avocado with a blunt knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. (See How to Cut and Peel an Avocado.) Place in a bowl. 2 Mash with a fork: Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado. 3 Add salt, lime juice, and the rest: Sprinkle with salt and lime (or lemon) juice. Add the chopped onion, cilantro, black pepper, and chiles. Remember that much of this is done to taste because of the variability in the fresh ingredients. 4 Cover with plastic and chill to store: Place plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole cover it and to prevent air reaching it. Chilling tomatoes hurts their flavor, so if you want to add chopped tomato to your guacamole, add it just before serving. Variations For a very quick guacamole just take a 1/4 cup of salsa and mix it in with your mashed avocados. Feel free to experiment! The simplest version of guacamole is just mashed avocados with salt.
