Guacamole Recipe

A Mexican dish, now popular as a 'dip', comprising a purée of ripe avocado, flavoured with onion, chili, garlic and sometimes tomato.
It should be made near to when it's to be eaten, as the avocado tends to go black when exposed to the air.
A little lemon juice delays this, as does covering the mixture with the avocado skin and stones.
