Get all of your ingredients together.  Generally I use 1.5 - 2 avocados.  Make sure they're ripe and yield to gentle pressure.

Blend the onion & tomatoes in a food processor.  You can chop them if you prefer but this takes 10 sec.  Cherry or grape tomatoes work well since they don't leave a lot of juice or water down the guac

Slice the avocados in half.  I find it's best to cut down to the seed and work the knife around until the two halves twist apart easily

Mash up the avocado into coarse pieces with a fork. No need to overdo it. (I added some of the onion-tomato mix before mashing but it may be easier to mash the avocados alone)

Add salt, pepper & lime juice to taste. I prefer grinding sea salt (7-10 turns) and fresh pepper (3-5 turns) since it tastes fresher.  Real limes are great but store bought lime juice works just fine.

If you like a little kick, I opt to add Sriracha sauce to taste! ... As you can see, some people can't wait 5 minutes and are ready to taste-test the guac ;)
