I made this recipe the other day when visiting my family and it was devoured within 30 minutes. I don't have exact measurements, I just tasted as I went and adjusted to my taste.

Alvocado's cut into squares
lime juice
garlic chopped
jalapeno
cilantro
onion
tomato cut into chunks
salt and pepper

I believe the keys to great guacamole are
  • good, ripe avocados
  • lime juice
  • small amount of freshly minced garlic
  • salt
I've been known to add tabasco sauce, cayenne pepper, or finely diced jalapeno to spice it up a bit. You can add diced onion, cilantro, or tomato, too. Just work off of the base above to suit it to your liking. I would mash the avocados more to make it creamier than add anything like sour cream or mayonnaise. My $0.02.

Texas, this one always makes me smile. Follow the little arrows at the bottom of each page to see the next screen. (I do like the way he baked the nachos with cheese to go with. ) At least I hope it will bring a chuckle.

Texas,

This isn't guac but it was one my dad use to love...We make it every time we have a party or holiday in his memory and because we cannot do without it The kids also put it on their tacos and burritos.
I'll give you the recipe using 1 avocado with my group we usually use 4 avocados
1-ripe avocado..hass is best
1-2 cloves crushed garlic
2-tab. evoo
1-tea. worcestershire sauce
about 1/2 c. mayo plus 2-3 tab. this is hard to measure out..I like a little more mayo than do my girls..so I'd say try a 1/2 cup then add or take away the next time...
salt
Mash avocado, add rest of ingredients, slice up a french or sour dough baggette and enjoy

Avocado
Finely minced onion and or scallion
Garlic (i make a paste by smashing up with salt)
Lime juice
Finely minced jalepeno or a touch of hot sauce
finely minced cilantro
salt and pepper


Recently I have been adding a t (or more) of jerk paste and omitting salt and hot pepper. It's yummy.
