1)  Finely mince the onion and chop the tomatoes into very small pieces.

2)  Mash the avocado and mix it with the above ingredients.


The basic ingredients of guacamole are avocados, tomatoes and onion.  It's a great accompaniment to a hot and spicy Mexican meal or as a snack with corn chips.

If the avocados are really juicy and fresh, don't disguise their wonderful flavour with sour cream.  A small amount of sour cream can improve the flavour if the avocados are a bit old and dry.

If the guacamole will be served with something spicy and/or hot, omit chili powder and jalapeno juice and jalapeno peppers.

If you're just eating it as a snack, you can jazz it up a bit with chili powder, jalapeno peppers and juice, lemon juice, garlic, etc., according to the flavours you like best.
