Chunky Guacamole

Side Dishes | January 13, 2015 | By



1 garlic cloves

5 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro, divided

1/4 cup minced red  onion

1 large jalapeño, seeded, minced, divided

Kosher salt

2 medium or 1 large avocados halved, pitted

1 medium tomato, cored, chopped

3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

1 tsp. lime zest

Tortilla chips (for serving)



Combine 2 1/2 Tbsp. cilantro, onion, garlic and 1 Tbsp. jalapeño in a mortar or a large bowl; season with salt and mash with a pestle or the back of a fork until a coarse paste forms. Using a small knife, cut flesh (not skin) of each avocado lengthwise into 4 strips, then crosswise 4 or 5 times, forming cubes. Using a spoon, scoop cubes out of peel and into mortar with onion mixture. Mash until slightly chunky. Mix in remaining cilantro and jalapeño along with the tomato, lime juice, and zest. Season to taste with salt. Serve with tortilla chips.  Can be made 4 hours ahead. Press plastic wrap on surface of guacamole and chill.
