Guacamole

Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 5 Hass avocados
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, plus more to taste
  • Kosher salt, as needed
  • Freshly ground black pepper, as needed

Directions

  1. Soak the red onion in cold water for 5 minutes to take out the “bite.”
  2. Cut the avocados in half and carefully remove the pits. Cut the avocado into large cubes and scoop from the skin with a kitchen spoon. Place the avocado chunks in a large mixing bowl and mash with a fork.
  3. Drain the chopped onion.
  4. Add the lime juice, tomato (if using), scallions, red onion, and cilantro, and adjust seasoning with the hot sauce, salt, and pepper.
  5. Refrigerate the guacamole in a tightly covered storage container. It is best to make guacamole the same day it is to be served.
