Equipment

  • molcajete

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup white onion finely diced
  • ¼ cup cilantro diced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice freshly squeezed (approx 1/2 a lime)
  • 4 avocados

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 roma tomato diced
  • 1 jalapeno seeds and membranes removed, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Instructions

  • Add the diced onion and cilantro into a medium size mixing bowl or molcajete. Add the salt and lime juice. Mash together. Let this sit while preparing the avocados. (add garlic and jalapeno during this step if desired.)
  • Slice the avocado in half, remove the pit. While in the shell dice the avocado into square pieces. Larger chunks for chunkier guacamole, smaller dice for smoother guacamole.
  • Scoop the avocado out with a spoon, add to the bowl or molcajete. Mash together to desired consistency.
  • Stir in diced tomato if desired.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

Storage: 
Cover the guacamole with plastic wrap and press it down to completely cover. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Guacamole is always best served fresh!
