Dad's Guacamole

3-4 ripe Haas avocados
2 Tbsp. red onion, minced fine
1 clove garlic, minced fine
1 large ripe tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 serrano or jalapeno pepper, minced fine
1Tbsp. cilantro
1 tsp. fine kosher salt
½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
juice of 1lime

First, you can’t make good guacamole with bad avocados!  Select some soft avocados, or buy firm ones and let them ripen several days till soft.
Remove seeds from avocados, keeping one or two seeds for use in storing mixture later.
Place all ingredients in large bowl.  Using a fork, mash mixture and stir until all ingredients are incorporated thoroughly.  Don’t make a paste!  Leave some chunks of avocado in the mixture.  Taste mixture, adjust seasoning.  Place one or two avocado seeds in the mixture to help prevent browning.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill for a couple of hours.  Remove from refrigerator and let stand for 30 minutes, stir again before serving.
