Basic Mexican Guacamole

The name says it all... featuring Avocados from Mexico of course.


4 servings


2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 teaspoons finely chopped yellow onions
2 teaspoons minced jalapeno or Serrano chilies, seeds and membranes
removed, if desired
kosher or coarse salt
2 large ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
2 tablespoons cored, seeded, and finely chopped plum tomato
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
warm tortilla chips, for serving


Mash together 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, 1 teaspoon of the onion, 1 teaspoon of the chile, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in the bottom of a molcajete or medium-size bowl.

Add the avocados and gently mash with a fork until chunky-smooth. Fold the remaining cilantro, onion, and chile into the mixture.

Stir in the tomato and lime juice, adjust the seasonings to taste, and serve with a basket of warm corn tortilla chips.
