Prep Time: 10 minutes
Makes: approx. 1 1/2 cups
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 ripe avocados
2 Tbsp – 1/4 cup minced onion
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp cilantro (I used dried cilantro)
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
Dash of black pepper
1/2 ripe tomato, chopped
Cut avocados in half….
Remove seed (pit), and scoop out the avocados from the peel, put into a mixing bowl….
Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado (don’t overdo it, this should be a little chunky!)….
Add the diced onion, cilantro, lime juice, tomato, jalapeno, & salt and pepper…
Be careful handling any kind of peppers when removing the seeds. I wear gloves and then thoroughly wash my hands after handling…
Remember…DO NOT TOUCH YOUR EYES OR FACE FOR SEVERAL HOURS after handling peppers.
Cover guacamole with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole (helps to prevent oxidation)…
Refrigerate until ready and you can change the spice level as needed!
