Ah... avocados. I love them and they are best in guacamole with other bright flavors like the tomato and cilantro. You can make it as spicy as you like, but I like mine mild so that I can taste all the ingredients.
The avocados should be just right – not too firm and not too soft. If you purchase them firm, place the avocado in a paper bag on the counter and close the top. After a day or so they'll be just right.
As the Key Lime Pie recipe says, you can use regular lime juice but it takes more juice than when using key limes. Key limes are more pungent and tart tasting than regular limes.
A bottled key lime juice was tested for this recipe. Florribbean 100% Key Lime Juice was simply terrible. The pie was not edible with the finished product having a plastic taste to it.
