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!

  2. Muddle the red onions and cilantro to release the juices and flavors
  3. Add avocados and mash with a fork (or mortar and pestle) to preferred consistency
