  • 1 lime
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 red onion finely diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and minced, optional
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro roughly chopped
  • 2 Haas avocadoes halved and seeded
  • Tortilla chips


  • In a medium bowl, squeeze the juice from the lime and add salt
  • Add the diced onion and minced jalapeno, and let sit for 5 minutes
  • Stir in the cilantro
  • Using a large spoon, scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl and coarsely smash with a fork
  • Mix just enough to bring everything together, but not so much that the avocados resemble a puree, the guacamole should still be somewhat chunky
  • Season to taste with more salt and lime
  • Serve with tortilla chips
