Sure, we could go forever and a day jazzing up our guacamole (adding in charred corn! fresh goat cheese! tons of herbs! mango!) but most the time we keep it super simple. Like a well-executed margarita, we believe good guacamole doesn't really need anything more than really good quality avos, fresh lime juice, and a pinch of salt. 

Ingredients

  • 4 medium firm-ripe avocados
  • 1 small Lime

    juiced (about 1/2 ounce)

  • 1/2 small jalapeño chile

    seeded and minced

  • pinch Sea salt

Instructions

Split and pit the avocados then scoop the flesh into a mixing bowl. Break the avocados up with a spoon until just broken up. Stir in the lime juice, salt, and jalapeno. Taste, and add more seasoning as desired.
