Ingredients

  • 3 avocados
  • 2 tablespoons onion
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 limes

Instructions

  • Start by chopping up 1/4 onion, 1/2 jalapeno, and 10 sprigs of cilantro. 
  • Add 2 tablespoons chopped onion, 1 teaspoon chopped jalapeno, and 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro to the molcajete along with 3/4 teaspoon salt and the juice of 1 lime.  Grind into a paste using the pestle.
  • Add the flesh of three ripe avocados to the mixture and combine well. 
  • Take a taste for seasoning.  I added another pinch of salt and another squeeze of lime to this batch.
  • Serve immediately and store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Notes

You'll probably have leftover onion, jalapeno, and cilantro that can be use to add additional flavor after some final taste testing.  
 
A good ratio to keep in mind for future batches is 1/4 teaspoon of salt for each avocado that you use.
