Instructions
  1. Scoop out the flesh of the avocados into a medium bowl. Lightly mash with a potato masher or fork.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, chiles, cilantro, and Mexican crema (if using). Season with salt.
  3. Cover the guacamole tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Recipe Notes

Ingredient tip: Exposure to air (oxygen) is what causes guacamole to brown. To prevent this from happening, always keep guacamole wrapped tightly with plastic. If the guacamole starts to brown, just scrape off the darkened part with a spoon.

    I sub’d some bad tasting avocado cilantro salad dressing I had purchased, in replacement of the crema.
    Came out ok using an immersion blender and lime juice. Now I don’t have to throw the dressing out.
