That is, unless they are on sale. And they just so happened to be available at a swell price quite recently. I had some friends over and we ate this wonderful guacamole with tortilla crisps.
|Mexican flag colors?|
Juice of half a lime
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 small chili pepper (I found the one pictured above on my counter. I honestly don't know what kind it is)
1 dash hot sauce
Chopped cilantro (if you like the taste it, it's a classic guacamole ingredient)
Salt and pepper
I mashed the avocado with the lime juice until it had only small chunks of avocado left. Of course, if you prefer a perfectly smooth dip, mash, mash away! Or use a blender or food processor.
Stir in everything else. If you are not serving the guacamole right away, refrigerate it with plastic wrap pressed directly to the surface of the dip. Otherwise, the avocados oxidize slightly and turn an unpleasant hue.

Guacamole, of course, is nice with tortilla chips. But I also like it spread on toasted white bread.
