Ingredients
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (from 1 to 2 limes)
  • 1/2 large tomato, stemmed
  • 1/2 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, such as kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper
Directions
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the avocados in half. Remove the pits. Scoop the flesh into a medium-sized bowl and roughly crush with a potato masher or fork. Stir in the lime juice.

  • Chop the tomato as finely as possible. Scrape the tomato flesh and juice into the bowl with the avocados.

  • Add the onion, garlic, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, salt and pepper and stir to mix.

  • Press a sheet of plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole. Let sit for about 1/2 hour at room temperature and then adjust the seasonings; you may want to add more jalapeno pepper, lime juice, salt or pepper.

  • Serve at room temperature with tortilla chips for dipping.
