2 ripe Hass avocados

1 tablespoon minced red onion

1 small clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon minced jalapeño, or more, to taste

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Pinch salt

1 tablespoon lime juice

Tortilla chips, for serving


Halve and pit one avocado, and scoop flesh into medium bowl. Using a fork, mash lightly with onion, garlic, jalapeño, cilantro and salt until lightly combined.

Halve and pit the other avocado. Using a dinner knife, carefully make ½-inch crosshatch incisions in avocado’s flesh, cutting down to but not through the skin.

Using a spoon, scoop the avocado flesh from the skin; transfer chunks to bowl with mashed avocado mixture. Add lime juice and mix lightly with fork until combined but still a bit chunky.

Serve at once with tortilla chips.
