Guacamole Recipe

We’ve been making this same guacamole recipe for 20 years, and it’s always amazing, whether you eat it with homemade tortilla chips, or top it on chicken taquitos or nachos. Guacamole recipes begin with nice, ripe avocados. A good trick is to see if the avocado gives slightly when squeezing it and if the stem tip easily breaks off. Feel free to add a couple cloves of crushed garlic to this recipe for guacamole make it really authentic!
