Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 1 or 2 fresh serrano or jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped tomato
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, plus a little extra for garnish
  • 3 medium-large ripe avocados (about 1¼ pounds total)
  • Salt added to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice or lemon juice.
  1. Place avocado pulp in a medium bowl.
  2. Using a fork mash the pulp with the lime juice - mixture will be slightly chunky.
  3. In a food processor or blender, combine tomato, onion, cilantro and chili peppers. Process or blend until finely chopped -guacamole tastes harmonious when all the flavorings are finely chopped.
  4. Stir blended mixture and salt into mashed avocados until combined.
  5. To serve, scoop into a decorative bowl. Guacamole is good when freshly made, but it tastes even better when the flavors are allowed to mingle for about 30 minutes.
