- Cut the avocados into half and remove the pit. Score the inside of the avocado with a knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Place the avocado in a bowl.
- Using a fork, mash the avocado. Don’t mash it too much as guacamole should be a little chunky.
- Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix. Adjust it according to your taste.
- Garnish with red radish. Best served with tortilla chips or toast.
