There are guacamole purists and there are guacamole adventurists -- some like to stick with just a few traditional ingredients to highlight the avocado flavor, while others let their imaginations and appetites run wild, throwing in everything from bacon to tequila.
According to famed Mexican cuisine acifionado and chef Rick Bayless, guacamole should be "a verdant, thick-textured bowl of festivity, ripe with the elusive flavor of avocado. Mash in a little lime, raw onion, coriander, chili, perhaps tomato, and the avocado comes fully alive." And while we hate to be traveling further away from the dip's origins in recommending a recipe all the way from The Guardian in the U.K., we can't argue with their article "How to Make the Perfect Guacamole" -- they've done their research, and we'd venture to wage their guacamole recipe is as good as any you'd find stateside.
