How's your guacamole?

I really like guacamole, and lately I've just been wanting it fresh. So I've been trying to make it - how hard can it be??? So, I bought avocados and made some. I mashed up the avocados, added some red onion and lime juice. I didn't have any cilantro, but I did put a little salt and pepper in it. It tasted ok, but needed some more lime. So, I made it again tonight, after I got some cilantro, and put in too much lime. It actually tastes like it's missing something, but I don't know what. What do you put in your guacamole?

I learned to make guacamole at a Mexican restaurant. I not only put in finely chopped onion, but also finely chopped tomatoes. Like one Roma tomato to two or three avocados. Romas have less juice and less seeds and more fleshy meat and that is why they are the best. Onions as much as you like. Mash with the lemon or lime juice. Fresh cilantro tastes the best. Mince some fresh garlic into it as well. One or two cloves. Sprinkle a few drops of the juice from pickled jalapenos in the guacamole. No peppers, just the juice. Salt and Pepper to taste. Let it stand at least an hour if you can resist eating it.
