Oaxacan Guacamole

Serves 4 to 6.

In Oaxaca, guacamole is more often a sauce than a dip. It's perfect for spooning over grilled meats of all kinds.

Ingredients:

2 very ripe avocados
1/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 to 3 serrano or jalapeno chiles, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (or more, to taste)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt (or more, to taste)

Method:

  1. Peel, pit and coarsely chop the avocados. Combine the onion, garlic and chiles in a blender or food processor and process until finely chopped. Add the avocados and process into a puree. Add lime juice, cilantro and salt and process just to blend. Taste for seasoning, adding lime juice or salt as needed.
