Super Easy Fresh Guacamole

There's nothing like a bowl of fresh guacamole with a mass of salty chips, and a batch of Killer Margaritas. This recipe simplifies guacamole dramatically, reducing it to just minutes to prepare - and fewer ingredients to buy. Serves 4

4 semi-ripe avocados (see note* on testing ripeness)
Fresh ready-made salsa (from the grocer's cooler)
Hot sauce to taste (my favorite: Cholula)

Halve the avocados, remove the seeds and scrape the flesh into a medium-sized bowl. Add four heaping tablespoons of salsa and about four healthy shakes of hot sauce. Mash together until blended - but you don't have to combine until it's smooth - keeping it chunky adds a rustic flair.

*Choosing ripe avocados isn't hard. Grasp one and give it a slight squeeze. The flesh should giveslightly, but should not immediately collapse under your finger - if that happens they are overripe. If the avocado feels like a rock in your hand, it isn't ripe at all. Drop it and find another. If none of them are ripe, postpone guacamole for another day.
