In this easy guacamole recipe, musician Mraz prefers California Hass or Reed avocados because they are the creamiest. Adjust the heat, tang or other flavorings to suit your tastes.
Mash avocados in a medium bowl. Add cilantro, onion, lime (or lemon) juice, oil, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Season with hot sauce, jalapenos, cayenne and/or chipotle, if desired.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover tightly to prevent browning and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.
