Guacamole Trio from Toloache

"Whip up guacamole for the next homegate party. Julian Medina of Toloache suggests you do three: a traditional version with a touch of heat from jalapeño; a fruity version with apple, peach, mango, sweet onion and a hint of habanero; and a spicy version with red onion, cilantro, chipotle, and queso fresco."
