Avacado Lovers Guacamole

I was a transfer student from Philadelphia PA to Denver Colorado when I was 15 [1973]. No one back east had ever even thought about Mexican food. No Taco Bells back home. "McDonald's Egg McMuffin" didn't exist yet.So I was introduced to REAL Mexican food. Taco bell sure doesn't do it justice, nor does "tex mex". So I hope you enjoy this time tested recipe for those of us who don't have the need to burn our taste buds off our tongues.

Note: Ragarding the mayo, start with less and then add more to your family's liking: Like with salt, you can add it later but can't take it out once its in...

Prep:

10 Min

Ingredients

2
very ripe haas avacados
1/2 c
diced onion [sweet onion if available]
1 Tbsp
white vinegar
1 Tbsp
hellmanns mayo add more slowly
1 Tbsp
sour cream [optional]
tortilla chips [optional]

SPICES:

dash(es)
accent
dash(es)
salt
dash(es)
freshly ground peppercorn or black pepper
dash(es)
garlic powder

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut avacado in half long wise.

Remove pit.

Using spoon, scoop outavacado "meat" and place in mixing bowl.

Note, although it only yields a small amount, I use a large mixing bowl and then store it to chill in an appropriate size container/serving dish.
2
Using potato masher, mash the avacado to desired consistency. I like mine thick and smooth, but some prefer it a bit chunky. Cook's choice. ;-)
3
Add onion & mix in with wooden spoon. I don't know why, but using metallic things seem to make the guacamole grow a brown top more quickly.
4
Note: from this point on, use lesser amounts and add by taste. Once its in, you can't take it out!!! It may slow down the process, but its sooo worth it when it tastes delicious. When you'e made the recipe a few times, you'll know what you like.
5
Add:

vinegar

mayo

Sour cream [optional]
6
Stir with wooden spoon.
7
Add additional ingredients to your taste.
8
Put in non-metallic container & place in refrigerator to chill for 3-4 hours. This lets flavors "mingle".
9
After chilled, taste & make adjustments as needed.
10
Enjoy!!!!

Some people like to eat with tortilla chips of your choice. The plainer the chip, the more you can taste the guacamole. If your choice of chip is one that's so hot it burns yourmouth, this recipe may not be to your liking. Its a more mild & mellow guacamole.
