    here's an easy one from tyler florence.

    6 ripe avocados
    3 limes, juiced
    1 medium yellow onion, chopped
    1 garlic clove, smashed then minced
    2 serrano chiles, cut into rounds
    1 big handful fresh cilantro with stems, about 1/2 cup, finely chopped
    Extra-virgin olive oil
    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground black pepper

    Halve and pit the avocados. With a tablespoon, scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl. Mash the avocados using either a fork or potato masher, leaving them still a bit chunky. Add the remaining ingredients, and fold everything together. Drizzle with a little olive oil, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and give it 1 final mix with a fork.

    Lay a piece of plastic wrap tight on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn't brown and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

    i know you don't like spicy so you can probably omit the serrano chilis.

        The secret is definitely the lime juice! Makes the guacamole really rip. My latin lover financee taught me also, that if you want it not to turn brown, simply keep the pit (or as they call it in Spanish, bones) and pit this in the finished mix! Enjoy.

              Mine is pretty much like the others -avocado, lime, tomato, salt...and chile if I'm feeling spicy. I like mine chunky but a lot of people like theirs smooth...it's up to you

                I make it using only avocadoes, red onion, and lime juice. SO good, and really simple.

                    This thread gave me a guacamole craving. I had to stop by whole foods and pick some up on my way to work...
