Classic Guacamole

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mary Jenny

A classic Cinco de Mayo dish. To mix it up, play with the heat – turn it up by adding more peppers or cut back slightly for children and guests who prefer a milder taste.

Made this as written and DH and I did enjoy it as an appetizer with chips a while before dinner. The only thing I think I would do next time is to add a little bit of tomato for color and a little flavor (could be because that is what I usually add). Thank you for submitting the recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2012 tag game.
