I love avocado. period. It is one thing that I could have on just about any type of dish. This recipe is easy ... mash the avocado, add the rest of the ingredients and serve with chips. It's the perfect afternoon snack.

  • 3 ripe avocados

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1/2 of an onion, chopped

  • 1 tomato, chopped

  • 1/2 clove of garlic, minced

  • 1 jalapeno, chopped (no seeds)

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

Halve and pit the avocados. With a tablespoon, scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl. Lightly mash the avocados using a fork, leaving them still a bit chunky. Add the remaining ingredients, and fold everything together. Drizzle with a little olive oil, add additional seasoning of salt and pepper to taste.

Lay a piece of plastic wrap tight on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn't brown. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
