¼ cup finely chopped fresh jalapeno pepper (optional)
Slice avocados in half. Discard the pit. Scoop out of shell with a spoon. Place in bowl.
Roll the lime on the table to soften it. Then, cut it in half. Squeeze the juice of each half into a large cup so it’s easy to pick out the seeds. Add the lime juice to the avocado immediately to prevent browning. Use a fork and mash to desired consistency.
Add chopped onions, tomato, and cilantro. Stir gently to mix ingredients.
Add salt to taste. Stir just slightly, until incorporated.
Add jalapeño to taste.
Serve with your favorite tortilla chips for a dip, or use with your favorite Mexican dish.
A side note: this is to make a chunky, yet creamy guacamole. Some people prefer to use a food processor with all the ingredients to make for a VERY creamy dip.
