Guacamole, Por Favor!


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 medium sized tomato seeded and chopped finely
  • 1 medium regular or sweet onion depending on if you like it hot or not
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and chopped (you can substitute for any spicy pepper but add slowly as you can always add more)
  • 30 gr (1/4 cup) finely chopped coriander leaves (cilantro)
  • 0.5 gr (1/4 tsp.) each of ground cumin and coriander seed
  • 2.5 gr (1/2 tsp.) salt
  • The juice of 1.5 limes
  • Tortilla chips for serving


  • In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the avocados and tortilla chips.
  • Peel and remove the pits from the avocados.
  • Cut the avocado coarsely and add to the rest of the mixture.
  • Mash the mixture with the back of a fork until you obtain a nice consistency. Do not over mash the avocado as guacamole should have chunks of avocado in it.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips or cover and refrigerate
