Notes

What if I like my guacamole smooth?
If you like your guacamole sans chunks - blend the onion, tomato, garlic, pepper, and citrus in your blender until smooth.  Then add in your avocados and pulse until smooth.
What if I like my guacamole in between chunky and smooth?
Mash your avocado on a flat surface, like a plate, with a knife, before you transfer it to your bowl.  Also blend your onion, tomato, garlic, pepper, and citrus to a smaller dice.

Expert Tips

How To Pick an Avocado- Firmness - hold in the palm of your hand and gently squeeze. If it has a little give it is ripe. If it is hard, it is not. The Stem - try to remove the stem. If it is tough to remove - the avocado is unripe; if it comes off too easily and the flesh underneath is brown, the avocado is overripe; but if it comes off easily and the flesh is green – you’ve found a good avocado.
Blending Foods- Always place your liquids in the bottom of your blender. This gives the blade room to spin and creates a smoother blend.
How to safely cut an avocado- Place the avocado on a cutting board slice it in half lengthwise using a sharp chef's knife. When you feel the pit, rotate the avocado so that your knife slices it all the way around, splitting the avocado in half. You should be left with one half with the pit, and the other half without. Place the half with the pit on the cutting board, hit your knife into the pit, and then rotate your knife. The pit will be removed by knife. Use a paper towel to pull the pit away from the knife.
