Peel the oranges or clementines and the grapefruit. Remove the pith and pits, if there are any, and chop up the flesh. Transfer to a measuring cup: you should get about 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) chopped citrus. (If you have more, just keep the extra citrus to enjoy as a snack, top your morning granola, or use in a smoothie.)
Slice one avocado in half, twist open, then remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh. Repeat to prepare the other avocados. Transfer the flesh from two of the avocados to a plate, then mash with a fork. Transfer to a large, nonreactive mixing bowl. Roughly chop up the flesh from the remaining two avocados. Add half of the reserved chopped citrus, tomatoes, red onion, coriander, lime juice, orange juice, jalapeño pepper, salt, and paprika. Use a fork or a spatula to gently mix all the ingredients together: you want to distribute the flavorings but avoid overmixing to keep some texture. Taste the guacamole and adjust the seasoning (salt and pepper) as well as the citrusy levels (lime juice) to your taste.
If serving this citrus guacamole as a dip: Transfer the guacamole to a wide bowl for serving. Garnish with the remaining chopped citrus, then top with the additional garnishes of your choice: fresh coriander leaves, pepitas, and Tajin or crushed red pepper.
If serving this citrus guacamole as a condiment: Use in fish tacos, fajitas, or grain bowls, or serve alongside quesadillas. Serve the remaining chopped citrus as an additional topping.
STORAGE: Avocado flesh browns upon coming into contact with air, even when mixed with citrus juice. To save extra citrus guacamole, transfer it to the smallest container possible, smooth out the top, and cover with a thin layer of extra-virgin olive oil. This will eliminate any contact with air and will keep the citrus guacamole’s bright colors for up to 1 day. Before serving, simply mix the olive oil into the guacamole.
