Home made Guacamole w/chips
2 ripe avocados
1/2 red onion, minced (about 1/2 cup)
1-2 serrano chiles, stems and seeds removed, minced
2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
A dash of freshly grated black pepper
Cut avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avacado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.
Using a fork, mash the avocado. Add the chopped onion, cilantro, lime and pepper and mash some more. I removed the seeds from the Chili peppers to reduce the degree of hotness (I usually wear gloves when cutting or touching cilantro or peppers but today forgot! Even after washing my hands I’ve touched my mouth and my lips are still burning!).
