"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

juice squeezed from ½ large orange
juice squeezed from one lime
sea salt and black pepper to taste
½ purple onion diced
1 small tomato diced
handful chopped cilantro
1 serrano or jalapeño pepper diced very finely (optional)

Assemble following into a bowl:
Pit avocados, or carefully spoon out the flesh, keeping the avocado as intact as possible.
Squeeze the juices of orange and lime over avocado.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add in chopped onion, tomato, cilantro.
Carefully mix together, so avocado doesn’t turn mushy.
Season again with salt as needed, and perhaps another squeeze of lime.
Serve immediately with your favorite tortilla chips.

To make enough guacamole, use 1 avocado per person and adjust ingredients.
