Guacamole

Guacamole is one of the best foods in the world if it’s made well.  If it isn’t made right it can be downright disgusting.  To me, the most important part is that the texture isn’t too smooth.  To get the right consistency, mix the guacamole with the blade of a knife, cutting the avocado into progressively smaller chunks, stopping while there are still some reasonable sized pieces, but everything is mostly incorporated.

Here’s what I use:

1 avocado
juice of 1/2 lime
pinch of salt
small splash of Tabasco sauce
1 clove diced garlic
a few sprigs of chopped cilantro (aka fresh coriander)

Everything is to taste, really.  You want to balance the salt and lime so that you can’t really taste either.  You shouldn’t be able to taste the Tabasco, or feel the heat; it will just give the guacamole some depth to the flavor.  Mix together as described above, and enjoy atop Mexican food, or with corn chips (my favorite).
