Guacamole Azteca

3 ripe avocados*

1/3 red onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 clove garlic, minced**
1 serrano chile, stem and seeds removed, minced
1 TBS fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped

1 lime, halved

Cut avocados in half, remove seed. Gently scoop avocado from the peel into a large non-metal mixing bowl. Partially mash using solid potato masher or the back of a large spoon.

Gently stir in onion, garlic, serrano & cilantro and mash until desired consistency is reached. Squeeze the juice from the lime over the guacamole & blend well.

Divide into 2 small serving bowls & cover with plastic wrap placed directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent browning. Refrigerate until ready.

*Avocados are ripe when they give slightly when gently pressed.
**Always use kitchen gloves when working with serranos. In a pinch, use a sandwich bag over you hand to protect yourself, they can be hot!!!
