Squeeze the lime juice into the mixing bowl. You can put as much lime juice as possible.  I find I use between 1-2 limes.

Mix all ingredients to your preferred consistency. For smooth creamy guacamole- over stir. For chunky texture- stir enough to mix the ingredients evenly.

Pour guacamole into a serving bowl and store the rest in the fridge. Enjoy! Goes with: Salsa, lime flavored nachos, flat breads, fajitas and tacos.

Just a few notes: You can put as much or as little of any of the ingredients and can't go wrong. I find red onions to be quite strong so lemon juice will help balance the taste. Try adding tomatoes!
