Add all other ingredients (start with only 1/2 teaspoon of salt) and stir into mashed avocados.
Sample it and add additional salt to taste. The amount of salt will depend on what you are serving it with. For example, serving with salted chips versus unsalted veggies may require less salt in the guacamole.
Use the guacamole as a traditional dip for tortilla chips, veggie chips, fresh vegetables, or see other fun ideas below.
Store leftovers by laying a piece of plastic wrap directly in contact with the guacamole. This will prevent oxidation and keep it green and fresh.

Finally, avocados have anti-inflammatory qualities, making them an ideal food to aid in recovery.
