This may be The Best Guacamole Ever


"Holy Guacamole, this is good!"

Those were the first words out of my nephew's mouth as soon as he could (sort of) politely speak after downing a batch of this Guacamole Recipe and a half a bag of taco chips.

That did it, I knew this recipe was destined for the book.

A great guacamole recipe can do more than top a taco chip. This one can even share the table with your Shabbos appetizer salads, it's a healthy sandwich spread and perfect complement for any Tex-Mex recipe like Chipotle Salmon Fish Cakes.


1/4 onion

1/4 cup cilantro

1/2 jalapeno pepper or 4 slices from a jar, rinsed

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

Juice of half of 1 lime (about 2 teaspoons)

1 ripe avocado, chunked

In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse onion, cilantro and jalapeno until finely chopped. Add mayonnaise, lime juice, and avocado. Pulse briefly until mixture is the consistency of chunky guacamole.

Makes: about 2 cups ~ Can make ahead
Active time: 10 minutes
