If you don't like your guacamole too spicy you will want to deseed the peppers when you chop them up.
Of course one of the star ingredients in this recipe is the avocado. You will want to pick the a ripe avocado. Finding a ripe avocado isn't difficult, but you want to make sure it is ripe, but not overly ripe, as either way, the flavor isn't at its best.

You can always taste them before using them. If they taste good, they should be good to use.
What makes this guacamole recipe special is the addition of sriracha. You may wonder what sriracha sauce is made out of, it is made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt.
