I love guacamole. I mean, given the opportunity, I will eat it, in almost all of its forms.

But when it comes to making guacamole at home, I am a purist. Ingredients:

  • Avocado, mashed

Salt to taste. I like cilantro and I like lime. I don’t think they have any place in guacamole. In fact, I am not sure that my ideal conception of guacamole really qualifies as guacamole, since it’s not much of a mole at all. It’s just mashed avacado.
