Serves: 2
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


Juice of 1 lime, plus more, as needed
Kosher salt
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/2 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
2 ripe Haas avocados, halved and seeded
Tortilla chips, for serving


In a medium bowl, combine the lime juice and a hefty pinch of salt. Add the onion and jalapeno, and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the cilantro.

Using a large spoon, scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl and coarsely smash with a fork. Mix just enough to bring everything together, but not so much that the avocados resemble a puree. The guacamole should still be somewhat chunky. Season to taste with more salt and lime. Serve with the tortilla chips.
