Tasty Guac II

As a side-project to Shannon's fresh ingredients/new recipe challenge, what if our revival of the cooking blog was accompanied by a guacamole bake-off? Bring on your variations on an ultimate favorite.
(anyone have a better verb for the "bake" part?...)

My mom's (only slightly altered) guacamole

2 ripe avocados
juice of 1 lime
1/2+ tsp cumin
1/4+ tsp coriander
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3-6 dashes of tabasco
1 diced tomato (optional)
salt to taste

Mash everything together with a fork or potato masher.
If you have the time and/or patience, chill for 1 hr before serving to let the flavors mingle.

Yum. You're on, because I love me some guac.
I've got a recipe I'll post for shrimp ceviche, which features avocado. Not quite guac, but it's awfully tasty.
