Guacamole

The Night Writers, my writing group, met at my house last Thursday. I threw together some guacamole to have as nibbles. They all wanted the recipe, so I thought you might too.

3 ripe Hass avocados (the nubbily black ones) peeled, pit removed
1 onion chopped fine (I used ½ of a big Spanish onion)
2 fresh seeded green Serrano peppers (you can also use jalapeƱos) or to taste, chopped fine
1 red tomato (I used 2 and I think it was too much)
A handful of chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Salt

Throw all the ingredient in a bowl and mash with a potato masher or a fork. Stir gently. Sprinkle with salt and taste it. Put plastic wrap directly on top of the guacamole and pop it in the fridge for at least ½ hour. It will hold for an hour or so. Spoon it into a molcajete if you have one and serve with tortilla chips.
