A quick, basic guacamole recipe that can be added to or extended in many ways. Try adding a diced tomato or two."I doubled the recipe with the exception of the cilantro (I personally don't like cilantro that much) added another clove of garlic and used the juice of one large lime (almost 4 TBSP). This is an easy and awesome guacamole recipe. The addition of the cumin really did it for me, I make guacamole a lot and always felt as if it was missing something, now I know what that something was. Thanks! " - Nancyfantastic

Basic Guacamole Preparation
Halve and pit the avocados and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Mash the avocados coarse with a fork and stir in the onion, the garlic paste, the lime juice, the cumin, the chili, and the coriander. The guacamole may be made 2 hours in advance, its surface covered with plastic wrap, and chilled.
This can be made several hours ahead and refrigerated. The taste and texture are best, however, when freshly made.
