Ok so, this is the best guacamole recipe I've come by yet. I think the keys are the grilled lime and the roasted Fresno peppers. Grilling the lime really mellows it out and gives a richness to it, and the roasted peppers add the perfect kick.

4 - 5 medium avocados
1/3c diced fresh or canned tomatoes
1 - 3 Fresno peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded and minced
1/4 sweet or red onion, small dice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4t cumin
1/4t chili powder
1/2 lime, pan grilled and juiced
fresh lemon juice, to taste
handful cilantro, chopped
salt & pepper

Combine everything but avocados - set aside to let flavors blend. Mash avocados, leaving plenty of chunks. Fold in the rest of the ingredients, and adjust seasoning.
