Perfect Guacamole



There's nothing like homemade fresh guacamole - an it's so easy to make - that's there's no need to ever buy store-bought. The secret is perfectly ripe avocados!


3 medium avocados , ripe, (preferably Haas)

2 tablespoon minced Vidalia or Maui onion 

1 clove garlic , minced or pressed through garlic press

1 small jalapeño chile, minced  

¼ cup minced fresh cilantro leaves 

Coarse Sea salt 

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)


1-2 tablespoons lime juice from 1 lime


1.    Halve 1 avocado, remove pit, and scoop flesh into medium bowl. Using fork, mash lightly with onion, garlic, jalapeño, cilantro, (optional cumin) and ¼ teaspoon salt until just combined.


2.    Halve and pit remaining avocado. Using a dinner knife, carefully make 1/2-inch cross-hatch incisions in flesh, cutting down to but not through skin. Using a soupspoon, gently scoop flesh from skin; transfer to bowl with mashed avocado mixture. Sprinkle lime juice over and mix lightly with fork until combined but still chunky. Adjust seasoning with salt, if necessary, and serve.
