If you are looking for an Easy Guacamole Recipe, there are a couple of really good ones below. But first a little guacamole backround.
An Easy Guacamole Recipe Comes From Fresh Ingredients
Guacamole, or avacado dip is a mixture of fresh vegetables like tomatoes, onions, and a delicious fruit that is often mistaken for a vegetable...the avocado.
The Aztecs of Mexico were the first to eat guacamole, but their version was basically just mashed avocados. They called it ahuacamolli, and it later became guacamole.
The Spaniards later added some European ingredients like tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro, and lime juice to where it is close to the version we enjoy today.

1 Roma tomato, seeded and diced1/2 cup minced sweet onion
2 serrano or jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
lime juice from 1 lime

Cut avocados into large chunks and mash coarsely in large bowl with a fork. Add remaining ingredients and blend gently - leaving some small chunks is fine. Taste and adjust seasoning with more pepper sauce, salt and pepper if desired.
