A very easy and basic Guacamole that is a family favorite at our house. Putting the avocado seeds back into the Guacamole will keep it from browning as quickly before consumption. Note - Muddling (crushing) the red onions and Cilantro at the beginning is the secret to adding some great depth of flavor! Enjoy!
