Smooth and Sassy Guacamole

Robin Robertson's Smooth and Sassy Guacamole, vegan and gluten-free
Tortilla chips are the usual accompaniment to guacamole, but raw vegetables and pita or bagel chips make a welcome change. Avocados were introduced to Mexico in the fifteenth century by the Incas, who originally brought them from Ecuador. I like Haas avocados because of their rich flavor and creamy texture. If you prefer a less sassy guacamole, leave out the jalapeños.
