I too love good guacamole. But way up here in the U.P., our pepper choices are very limited. And as my DW can't deal with any type of heat, I make a more bland batch for her with Haas avacaco, diced tomato, finely mined onion, and lemon juice.

For me, I add fresh jalepinoes when available, or hungarian peppers, or when I can't get any good peppers, a good bit of Tobasco, along with minced onion, fresh, minced garlic, diced tomato, a splash of lime juice, and cilantro.

Like the rest of you, I could eat the stuff daily. But again, avacadoes can be hard to come by around here, and are fairly expensive.

I may have access to some of the best freshwater fish on the planet around here, but we are so limited in veggie and fruit varieties. That's a terrible thing for a guy like me who loves so many foods.

Not that it's guac, but a distant cousin...
I remember almost every Sunday morning having the same breakfast before church. Since Mom, sis & I would take a while getting ready, Dad would toast lots of slices of good sourdough (around here we get San Luis Sourdough, which has a fantastic, full flavor), and he'd slather tons of avocado dip on top (avos mashed with a bit of miracle whip, salt, pepper, shake of tabasco). He'd bring it to us, no matter where we were in the house. AHHHH! Fond memories!

I’m sure every family has their own authentic recipe this is one of them and it is good I had it tasted and approved by some friends from Mexico.

Guacamole:

This is an authentic Mexican recipe.
Very simple to make.

2 ripe avocados
1 small ripe tomato
1 red jalapeño peppers (or green one if you like it hot)
1 small bunch of fresh cilantro (coriander)
1 small red onion
Juice of ½ of freshly squeezed lime (depends on season the lime could be very juicy or not, so adjust to taste)
A pinch of salt.
If you like very hot/spicy you can add couple of drops of some hot sauce.

Mash avocado with potato masher, chop everything very finely, mix together, enjoy. Keep it covered tightly so the avocado doesn’t get dark. It will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, or even more.

That sounds very similar to what I did Charlie. I would have used red onion if I did not have chives growing in my garden, but I figured I would save a few pennies this way.

I should also mention that I mashed my avocados in with the other ingredients with just a fork and I wanted to leave it somewhat chunky.

Chunky is good, GB - lets you really enjoy the avo flavor. (Smooth is better if you're eating winter avos)

I use my Mom's old metal potato masher for guac.

I've got to get to the market today - Haas avos are still on sale for 99 cents.
