Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons finely chopped Cilantro leaves
2 Teaspoon finely chopped white onion
2 Teaspoons minced Jalapeno or Serrano (or a mix)
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher salt
2 Large avocados, peeled and seeded (Stark recommends California Haas)
2 Tablespoons finely chopped plum tomato (cored and seeded)
2 Teaspoons fresh lime juice

Step one: Add 1 tablespoon of cilantro, 1 teaspoon each of onion and minced chili, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the bowl (Dos Caminos uses a lava stone Molcajete but any medium-sized bowl will suffice).

Step two: Mash the ingredients together: If you don’t have a pestle you can use the back of a spoon. The resulting paste is redolent with the flavors of cilantro, onion, and chilies.

Step three: Halve two avocados and remove the seeds. Score a grid pattern into each half.

Step four: Add the avocado cubes and gently fold them into the paste.

Step five: Add the remaining cilantro and onions. For heat, add an additional teaspoon or two of the chilies.

Step six: Squeeze fresh lime juice over the mixture.

Step seven: Add chopped plum tomatoes to the mixture and gently fold the ingredients once more.

Viva guacamole! Serve with warm chips and salsa and enjoy!!

Chef Ivy recommends using the freshest possible ingredients and advises that California Haas avocados make the best guacamole, because they have a buttery texture and denser form. Give this easy but excellent recipe a try! You will love it!

¡Buen apetito!
