Serves 4

2 ripe avocados
3 tablespoons minced jalapeño
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons minced red onion
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon kosher salt, or more to taste


With a sharp knife, cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit and scrape the flesh with a spoon into a small bowl. Transfer half to a medium bowl and use the back of a fork to mash it until a paste forms. Add the jalapeño, lime juice, onion, cilantro and salt and stir to combine.

Add the reserved avocado half, mix gently and season with salt, as needed.

Tip: For great color and unexpected sweetness, toss some pomegranate seeds into the guacamole.
