The hot and spicy guacamole

Ingredients for 5-6 guests:

* Avocados: 2-3 large, mature ones
* Tomato flesh from 1 red tomato; seeds and skin removed
* Onion: 1 small one, chopped finely
* One large jalapeno pepper (or 2-3 small ones), chopped very finely
* freshly chopped cilantro: 1 bunch, or as you like
* Salt 1 pinch, or to taste
* Freshly ground pepper 1 pinch or 3 turns of the pepper grinder
* Olive oil: 2 tablespoons
* One tablespoon lemon juice


* carefully mash the avocados with the back of a fork. As you are mashing them gradually pour the lemon juice over. Pour the resulting mashed avocados in a bowl.
* Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix the rest of the ingredients, all previously cut and without seeds,
* When all the ingredients are in the bowl, mix and mash carefully so that you get a homogeneous mixture
* Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and in case of the taste turning too acidic, add a pinch of sugar.
* It would be preferable to eat immediately this sauce since the avocado oxidizes quickly in contact with air.
To prevent the avocados from oxidizing and blackening, the trick is that you can sprinkle a few more drops of pure
lemon juice over your guacamole preparation; then mix, then sprinkle some more.
