Easy Guacamole

The food processor makes quick work of this Easy Guacamole that's rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. We like the heat from leaving the seeds in the jalapeño, but you can seed the pepper for a milder guac. Serve with tortilla chips or crudités.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1/4 cup)


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coarsely chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 none garlic clove
  • 1/2 none small jalapeño pepper
  • 1 none ripe peeled avocado
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro leaves


1. Place first 5 ingredients in a food processor; pulse 5 times or until finely chopped. Add avocado; process until smooth. Sprinkle with cilantro.
