Guacamole

Total Time:
15 min
Prep:
15 min

Yield:
about 3 cups
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/2 small yellow or 1/4 red onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 ripe Hass avocados
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh coriander (cilantro), optional
  • 1 ripe plum tomato, cored and diced
  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno (with seeds), minced
Directions
  • Soak the onion in cold water for 15 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

  • On a cutting board, lightly sprinkle the garlic with a pinch of salt and smash it into a paste with the side of a cook's knife. Transfer the paste to the bowl with the onion.

  • Using a knife cut the avocados in half, rotating around the pits. Remove the pits and discard (See Cook's Note.). Using the knife, carefully make several slashes in the avocado flesh. Using a spoon, scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl with the onion and garlic. Repeat with the remaining avocados.

  • Add the coriander (if using), tomato, and jalapeno, to taste, to the avocados. Using a rubber spatula or large fork, mix until just combined, keeping the guacamole chunky. Season with salt, to taste. Serve immediately.
