This party-time guacamole is spicy, quick, and relatively healthy. Refrigerate guacamole with plastic wrap against the surface of the dip to prolong shelf life. Serve with tortilla chips or your favorite dipping accompaniment.

Cook's Notes:

Lemon juice not only adds flavor, but the acid keeps the avocado from oxidizing. Limes can be used in place of the lemon at a ratio of 2 limes to 1 lemon.

When preparing the jalapenos, discard seeds for a more mellow dip or keep them in for an extra kick.
