This guacamole recipe, made with perfectly ripe avocados, lime, cilantro, chiles and red onion, is the perfect accompaniment to tortilla chips and Tex-Mex dishes. The key here is perfectly ripe avocados, they should be a bit soft to the touch. To speed up the ripening process, place rock-hard avocados in a paper bag with an apple or a banana for two to three days.
