DIRECTIONS

  • Mince the garlic (add more or less to taste).
  • Dice the onion (ditto).
  • Cut avocado in half and twist to separate. Stab the pit with the long sharp edge of your knife: twist it, and the pit will come right out attached to the knife.
  • With a spoon, scoop out contents into a glass bowl.
  • Add the garlic and onion.
  • Using two knives cross-cut the mixture until it is in smaller chunks, then mash with a fork.
  • Squeeze in 1/2 the lime, white pepper and salt. Taste. Add more salt and/or lime as needed.
  • I don't care for a lot of additions, but cilantro is one I like. Avocados are too subtle, so adding too many other ingredients obscures its wonderful, nutty flavor.
  • Also consider black olives, tomatoes (de-seeded and diced) or jalapenos.
  • Serve with chips and home-made salsa, or add to any sw or Mexican dish.
