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.
Nearly idendtical to what I make. Good stuff for sure.

Sounds good GB!

Although I prefer my guac to be cooling and mild (hold the peppers, please - they are in the salsa or pico de gallo) is there really a wrong way to make guac - or eat an avocado???

I probably shouldn't have asked that question (is there a wrong way to make quac) ... someone is bound to show up with a tofu guac recipe ...

The amount of hot pepper I put in, for me, did not make this hot at all. There was the slightest kick, but had I not known it was there I would not have been able to really pick it out I don't think. My MIL on the other hand took one bite and got hot in her face
