El Nacimiento's guacamole

Alvaro "Al" Padilla-Lopez & Joel Padilla from El Nacimiento share their unique recipe for guacamole.

3 ripe large avocados, peeled & pitted
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1 tomato, diced & seeded
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped seeded jalapenos ( if you like)
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice

1. Open the avocados and scoop out the flesh. An easy way is to cut it length-wise around the pit and than using a chefs knife strike the pit and then twist the knife so you can easily remove the pit and scoop out the flesh.
2. Mash the flesh with a fork, it can still have hard parts, follow your preference.
3. Stir the other ingredients.
4. Enjoy right away or store in the refrigerator. A trick is to put a plastic wrap that touches the guacamole so it doesn’t brown because of contact with air.
