It's getting on 1am when M and I realize we're hungry. The result: guacamole!
Modified from "Perfect Guacamole"
2 ripe avocados
1/4 red onion, minced
Some cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh lime or lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
Dash of black pepper
1/2 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped
1. Cut avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avocado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.
2. Using a fork, mash the avocado. Add the chopped onion, cilantro, lime or lemon, salt and pepper and mash some more. Adjust to your taste. Keep the tomatoes separate until ready to serve.
3. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation from the air reaching it. Refrigerate until ready.
4. Just before serving, add the chopped tomato to the guacamole and mix.
Serve with tortilla chips.
