  • 1 Tbs chopped white onion
  • ½ tsp choped jalapeno chile
  • ½ tsp chopped cilantro
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 3 Tbs chopped white onion
  • 1 tsp chopped jalapeno chile
  • 1½ tsp chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbs chopped tomato (discard juice and seeds)
  1. Make the chile paste: Grind the onion, cilantro, jalapeƱo, and salt together in a molcajete until all the ingredients are very finely ground. Alternatively, use a fork to mash all the ingredients to a paste in a wide hardwood bowl.
  2. Holding the avocado in the cup of your hand, split it in half lengthwise in strips, then across, forming a grid (cut through the flesh only, not into the skin). Sccop the avocado out with a spoon.
  3. Add the avocado to the paste and thoroughly mix together, then add the rest of the ingredients and fold. Add jalapeno chiles and salt to taste.
