Keyword: guacamole
Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients
  • 2 ripe avocados, cut in half and pits removed
  • 1/4 cup green onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • a few turns black pepper
  • 1 jalapeño halved and seeded - optional
Instructions
  1. Hold the avocado half in your hand and cut through in a cross hatch, without cutting through the skin. Scoop out into a bowl. Repeat with the other halves.
  2. Stir all of the ingredients together. If you prefer a less chunky guac, mash with a large fork until you reach your desired consistency.
Recipe Notes
  • Make sure you use ripe avocados for the best results. To test if your avocado is ripe, press its side. It should yield slightly, but not feel too soft or mushy.
  • Avocados will oxidize and turn brown when they are cut and exposed to air. To ensure that they don’t turn, have all of your ingredients prepped and ready before you slice into them.
  • The lime juice will also help to prevent oxidation, drizzle it immediately over the chopped avocado and toss well.
  • Guacamole should be made as close to serving time as possible, but if you need to store it in the refrigerator for a short while before serving, cover it with plastic wrap, pressing it right on the surface of the guacamole.
  • Don’t skip the salt! It helps to bring out the flavor of all of the ingredients. Season, taste, adjust, enjoy!
