This is my favorite easy guacamole recipe. I learned how to make it on a trip to Mexico years ago. I love the simplicity – with just four ingredients, the flavors of the avocado and lime really shine through. I've tried many others, but I always come back to this simple recipe.
I've taken this guacamole to many parties and it always disappears quickly. I like to serve with fresh vegetables — cucumber slices, carrot sticks, red, yellow and orange pepper wedges, or endive leaves.
The key to this recipe is making sure you have enough lime juice and salt to give it a nice bright flavor. Since avocados vary in size, always taste and adjust the seasonings before serving.
