Gluten Free Family-Favorite Guacamole Recipe

This is my husband’s special recipe. He usually gets my kids to help with the prep work, so they claim it to be a little bit theirs, as well. Either way, it is a simple and quick version but the flavors meld perfectly. You can mash it to whatever texture you prefer – we like to leave ours a little bit chunky.
