Totally Excellent Guacamole

Guacamole is one of the easiest things to make and bring to a barbeque or party, but it seems that a lot of people have trouble getting it right. I've had my share of lousy guac, and I think it's time to set things straight.

5 ripe avocados
3 limes
About a cup of salsa (store-bought works great, or you can make your own [see below], or just dice some tomatoes, onions, garlic, and chilis and add a little salt and pepper)

Mash the avocados in a large bowl with a potato masher. I like my guac chunky, but you could puree the avocados in a food processor if you want it smoother. Add the salsa and the juice of two limes. Mix well and taste. If necessary, add another lime. Serve with tortilla chips!
