Ingredients
  1. 2 avocados, halved, with pits removed
  2. 2 tablespoons diced onion*
  3. 1 small jalapeno, seeded and minced
  4. 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro (optional)
  5. 1 teaspoon cumin
  6. Juice of one lime
  7. 1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
Instructions
  1. Scoop the flesh from the avocado halves into a medium bowl.
  2. Mash with a large fork or a potato masher until mostly smooth with some chunks remaining.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Adjust seasoning.
Notes
  1. Tip: if you have a potato ricer, it makes mashing the avocado really easy. Use the coarsest disk insert and rice the avocado into the bowl before adding the other ingredients. It's especially handy if your avocados are less than perfectly ripe.
  2. *To mellow the flavor of the raw onion, after dicing, cover it with cold water and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
