abouts 2 1/2 cups
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/2 small yellow or 1/4 red onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 ripe Hass avocados
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 ripe plum tomato, cored and diced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 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 1/4 teaspoon 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 seeds. Remove the seeds and discard. 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 avocado.

  • Add the lime juice, cilantro, 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.
