This classic guacamole starts with mashed ripe avocados and gets a little zing from scallions, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice. Serve it with quesadillas and baked tortilla chips and kick back with a cold beer. Or, learn How to Make Nachos and throw your guacamole on top.
What to buy: Look for avocados that give slightly when pressed but are not completely soft. We used Hass avocados.
Game plan: If you prefer your guacamole a little spicier, don’t remove the seeds from the jalapeño.
