Half Tablespoon chili pepper

Halve and empty contents of avocados into a large bowl; use fork to mash into chunks

Add garlic powder and chili pepper, mix well

Fold in onion, tomatoes, and chipotle pepper (if using)

Mix hot sauce and lime juice together; add to guacamole and mix well

Salt and pepper to taste and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving
