There is always a bowl of this out when I am entertaining. Serves 6.


5 ripe avocados
2-3 fresh jalapeños, deseeded and diced
¾-1 medium white onion, finely chopped
¾-1 red pepper to taste, finely chopped
2 limes, juiced
A generous handful of cilantro, coarsely chopped
JF Universal Salt, to taste
Fresh ground pepper


Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit and coarsely score them with a spoon.
Scoop out the avocado in chunks. Keep the pits for the bottom of the bowl to retain the avocados color. My mom's trick! Add the lime juice to the avocado and mix lightly, you want to keep the texture chunky so don't add too much liquid. Add the chopped jalapeño, onion, and red pepper, adding ½ jalapeño at first, and then slowly adding more to taste. Add cilantro, JF Universal Salt and pepper. Garnish with an extra squeeze of lime, extra red pepper, and cilantro leaves. Serve with very good quality tortilla chips.
