Here are your ingredients. You want your avocados to be ripe.
Prepare ingredients: Finely chop cilantro & onions, slice lime for squeezing. Slice lime into smaller wedges if you find it difficult to hand squeeze 1/2 a lime.
Slice avocado (view my tutorial on coring avocado) Scoop avocado and place into a large mixing bowl.
Add chopped cilantro, chopped onions and minced garlic into the bowl. Season with a little salt and pepper.
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!
