Jennifer's California Style Guacamole

Jennifer's California Style Guacamole

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 cracked black pepper, to taste


Halve the avocados, remove the pits, 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 avocado's color - my mom's trick! 


Add the lime juice and combine gently. Add the chopped jalapeño, onion, and red pepper, adding ½ jalapeño at first, and then slowly incorporating more to taste. Add cilantro, JF Universal Salt, and pepper. Garnish with an extra squeeze of lime, red pepper, and cilantro leaves. Serve with very good quality tortilla chips.
