Greg's Favorite Guacamole

READY IN: 20mins

The secret to great guacamole is: "Less is more!" Forget about the chili powder, the salsa from a jar, the sour cream, etc. Just keep it fresh and simple. Also, don't "over mash it."

Greg this is perfect. Can I add one small trick I learned from my "abuelita"? Crush the garlic and the salt together until you have a puree. Thanks for posting this! T.J.
