Guacamole was concocted by the Aztecs over 400 years ago. Since then it has become an American party-food favorite and restaurant menu staple. Tortilla chips are the natural accompaniment, but you can also serve it with veggies like jicama, bell peppers, and radishes.
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 ripe avocados, peeled and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup chopped plum tomato (1 large)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
How to Make It
Place onion, salt, and avocado in a medium bowl; mash with back of a wooden spoon. Stir in tomato. Add lime juice, stirring until avocado just begins to lose its shape but is still very chunky.
