 Guacamole seems to be either loved or hated by most people, you don't find many in the middle. Somehow, we managed to not eat this green stuff until about a year ago, but now it seems to be always in the house.

After several failed attempts, I have finally found a good recipe for guac, however I have to admit that picking the right avocado can still be challenging. Last week, I bought 5, 1 was perfect, 1 had fuzzy mold on the inside, 2 looked like they were on the verge of growing mold and the last one was about half usable. So, my grand plans for a guacamole side were ruined.

This week, I let someone else pick the avocados, he did a much better job :)

So, if you would like to make some of your own guac, here's what you need to do:

Chop 1/4 an onion (about 1/4 a cup), 1/4 a red pepper and 3/4 - 1 cup fresh cilantro and toss into a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine.

 Add 3 avocados to the food processor and pulse until mostly combined. Remove the blade and stir the last by hand so there are still a few larger pieces of avocado. Add some kosher salt to taste (you'll need a fair amount), stir in with a spatula. Enjoy!
