Classic Guacamole

The trick to making great guacamole is ripe avocados. It can be hard to find them ripe the day you need them, so keep a few on hand.

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine jalapeño, cilantro, salt, lime juice and garlic, if using.
  2. Just before serving, cut avocados in half. Remove pits. Scoop out flesh and dice. Add to mixture in bowl and mash with a potato masher. Guacamole can be as smooth or chunky as you wish. Taste and adjust seasonings.If not serving immediately, cover surface of guacamole directly with plastic wrap to help prevent discolouration. (Lots of lime juice also does the trick.)
