Cinco de Mayo Guacamole Recipe

  • ½        red onion, diced
  • 1          tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1          tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 2          avocados, diced
  • 2          tablespoons lime juice (about ½ a lime depending on how juicy it is)
  • 1          teaspoon Cholula hot sauce
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the jalapeño, onion, tomato, and cilantro. Add the diced avocado and immediately squeeze lime juice over it (to prevent it from browning). Add hot sauce and stir to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
