    I don't know about ultimate, but here is mine. I usually do everything by eye and to taste, so the amounts are inexact

    3 ripe Hass avocados (if you use bigger ones, use fewer)
    Some ripe good tomatoes 4-5 roma, or fewer if bigger, chopped into about 1/2" cubes
    A couple of cloves of garlic, minced
    1 medium or a couple of small onions, diced
    A handful of cilantro and or parsely, chopped
    Good olive oil
    fresh squeezed lime juice (from 1 or two limes)
    salt & pepper

    I like my guac chunky, so I don't mash the avocado. Instead, I cut them in half and remove the pit. Then, while the avocado flesh is still in the skin, I make parallel cuts in it in one direction, then in the other, so I basically cut a fine checkerboard into the avocado half. Then I scoop the flesh out with a spoon, and it comes out in little pieces.

    I add the tomato, onion, cilantro, and garlic and mix. Then add a litte olive oil (just a tablespoon or two), then lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. The avocado pieces start to break down a little, making a creamy coating for everything, but still stay chunky.

    mine is pretty much the same. The only difference is that I add a bit of lime zest. I find roma and plum tomatoes give the best flavor. I add the salt at the very end and adjust as needed.

    I think i'll make some tonight icon_smile.gif
