My Notes:

Feel free to experiment with the ingredients by keeping avocado and salt as base. Guacamole can be made smooth or chunky depending on individual taste.

Add lemon juice immediately to prevent browning.

Tomato, onion or any other veggie can be added and used for sandwich spread.

Adding cheese is optional, this can be substituted with tofu or paneer.
