Oaxacan Guacamole

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

Recipe 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)


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.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
