The secret to awesome guacamole is to mash the avocado with a fork so that there are some good chunks left in the avocado. So many people tend to over-mash those green beauties and they end up a bit thin and frankly, not as fun to eat or as easy to scoop up with chips. And who am I kidding . . . the more guac I can scoop onto one chip, the better! Am I right?
3 avocados, ripe
1 roma tomato, diced
½ c. cilantro, chopped
Juice from 2 limes
4 green onions, chopped (or ¼ c. chopped white onions)
1 serrano or jalapeno, seeds and membranes removed (omit if you don’t like spice)
Salt to taste
Cut the avocados lengthwise, remove the pits, and scrape the flesh out with a spoon into a bowl. Mash with a fork, leaving some chunks of avocado.
Add the lime, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and cilantro. Season with salt and mix together. Serve immediately.
