The target consistency for this guacamole is smooth, yet chunky. In order to do this, create a crater in the middle of the mixing bowl, and mash about 1/4 of the finished guacamole it until smooth. The chunks that cling to the side of the bowl remain intact. Then mix the smooth guacamole with the avocado chunks. In adding the lime juice over the avocado, not only does it season it, but it helps prevent discoloration. This recipe is vegetarian with the cheese, vegan without it.
