I love avocados and my favorite way to eat them is in guacamole. You can vary the amount of jalapeño pepper according to taste. To ripen the avocados, leave them in a closed paper bag at room temperature.
- 2 ripe small avocados
- 1 lime
- 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons fresh jalapeño pepper, desseded and finely chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Cut each avocado in half, working around the pit. Twist apart, and remove the pit with a knife. Peel off the skin and toss in a bowl. Add the lime juice to prevent from browning, mash the avocados.
- Add the onion, Jalapeño pepper, cilantro and salt.
- To serve as a dip, transfer to a serving dish, garnish with cilantro and serve with tortilla chips.
