An easy, homemade guacamole recipe with just the right amount of cilantro in it is worth its weight in, well, avocados. Delicious!
- ½ small red onion, peeled
- 1 jalapeño, seeded
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- ¼ cup (50mL) fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 lime
- 2 ripe avocados, pitted
- ½ tsp (2mL) salt
- Tortilla chips (optional)
Cut the onion into chunks with the Coated Utility Knife. Remove the stem from the jalapeño and cut it in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the seeds with the knife, then cut the jalapeño into chunks. Add the jalapeño and onion to the Manual Food Processor.
Press garlic into the processor bowl with the Garlic Press. Add the cilantro and process until finely chopped. Then, juice the lime into the processor bowl.
Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Partially insert a knife edge into the pit, then rotate it a quarter-turn to release the pit. To remove the pit from knife, pinch the pit at the top, and carefully slide the pit off the blade. Use the Small Mix ‘N Scraper® to scoop the flesh out and transfer it to the processor bowl. Add the salt to the bowl and process to your desired consistency. Serve with tortilla chips, if desired.
