My secret to a good guacamole is to leave it chunky.  But here are some secrets I would like to share.

1 Avocado
1/4 minced onion
1/2 medium size ripe tomato (squeeze the juice and seeds out - that's the secret) minced
1 lime (warmed in microwave so you can juice it easier)\
1 Jalapeno pepper (seeded and minced)
1/2 c cilantro leaves (mince after measuring removing the heavier stems)
1-1/2 tsp Fleur de sel

Shown on left hand side is the salad chopper I used.  It's a very useful gadget for chopping your salad.  And if you have ever been to a place that makes chopped salad, this is what they use.  You can find it on the right had side of the screen if you search for salad chopper.
Make sure you squeeze off the juice from the tomato so your guacamole does not get soggy.  Mince all the ingredients prior to adding in the avocado.  Combine all ingredients in a bowl and cut them up with the gadget similar to what I'm using.  That gadget can be used also making chopped salad!

The above recipe makes a good appetizer for 2.
