  • 2 Ripe avocados
  • Sea Salt, to taste (About 1/2 teaspoon is a good place to start)
  • The juice of 2 limes (or 1 average sized lemon)
  • 1/2 of a small red onion, minced (About 1/2 cup)
  • 1 anaheim chili pepper, stems and seeds removed, minced
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped tomato. (If using roma or hothouse tomato, remove pulp and seeds.)
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked crisp, drained, and crumbled finely
  • A few grinds of black pepper, if desired.
  1. Cut avocados in half lengthwise, remove seeds and scoop pulp out into a medium sized bowl. Add lime juice and salt and mash roughly with a fork.

  3. Serve immediately or store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Guacamole is a pretty freeform dish. Feel free to play with the ingredients and add what you like.

Want it hotter? Use a jalapeno pepper or some red pepper flakes. Want it smoother? Add a dollop of sour cream or Mexican crema. Feel like you want more tartness? Use lemon juice instead of the lime juice. It's all up to what you and your family will enjoy.
