Fresh Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup seeded, chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp. minced red onion
  • 1 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 tsp. minced jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • - kosher salt, to taste

Cut avocados in half; remove pits. Scoop flesh from one avocado into a medium glass bowl. Mash with a fork; stir in tomato, onion, garlic, jalapeño and cilantro. Cut flesh of remaining avocado into 1/2" cubes. Scoop out of skin into the bowl with the mashed avocado mixture. Sprinkle with lime juice, mixing lightly with a fork until combined but still chunky. Season with salt. Serve with tortilla chips.

Good to Know:

  • To ripen avocados, place in a paper bag; leave on the counter at room temperature, checking each day until they reach the desired softness.
  • For variety, stir in cooked shrimp, lump crabmeat, chipotle peppers, tomatillos, sliced red radishes or jicama to the finished guacamole.
