DIY guacamole

all details

Hip Mexican restaurants now offer a guacamole service at your table, crushing the avocado in a traditional molcajete or mortar and mixing it with condiments just before you eat it. Here's a version for you to try at home. Set everything up at the table and get pounding for the freshest guac you've ever had.

3. Serve while still lightly chunky.
