Notes

Variations:
You can use red, white, or yellow onions
Jalapeno peppers can be substituted for Poblano
Lime can be added for brightness if needed
The most difficult part is finding ripe avocados. We simply buy them days to a week ahead and let them sit on the counter until nearly ready. If we know we are not going to use in  the next couple days, we simply place them in the refrigerator where the ripening process is much slower. 
Best Served Immediately.
TIP:
If you do have to hold the guacamole in the fridge for a couple hours, use plastic wrap placed directly onto the top of the guacamole and push tightly up against the side of the bowl, keeping all air out. If this step is not taken, the guacamole will turn brown.
