1. Cut avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avacado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.

2 Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado. (Don’t overdo it! The guacamole should be a little chunky.)

4. Chop half of one chili pepper and add to the guacamole to your desired degree of hotness.

5. Add half of chopped tomato

6. Serve with chips and enjoy!
