Chunky Guacamole

I like my guacamole REALLY chunky. I put more ingredients than normal creamy guacs that end up tasting kind of plain after awhile. This is a recipe that I have made time and time again, and I think I have increased the amount of “chunk” I put it in because it gives it more flavor. But change it up how you want and make it your own! 🙂 The ingredients should be PRETTY cheap because vegetables are CHEAP! I can make guacamole for about 2 dollars instead of spending 5-6 bucks on it at the grocery store. And it’s so easy to  make!

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Chop roma tomato in half and scoop out the insides
  2. Chop the tomato into small cubes
  3. Split the jalapeno in half and remove the seeds (you can keep them in if you want but it might be very spicy!)
  4. Chop the jalapeno into very small pieces
  5. Chop the red onion into small pieces
  6. Chop the cilantro with the stems off. A little bit is okay. Look at the picture below for reference

  8. Chop the cilantro. Make sure to use a sharp knife because you do not want to damage the leaves!
  9. Cut open the avocados and remove the seed. You can do so easily by lightly tapping the seed with the knife and then rotating the knife sideways to pop the seed out

  11. Scoop out the avocados and mash with a fork. You do not have to mash it completely so that there are some chunks left
  12. Add a dash of salt and squeeze in some lime. Taste the avocado mash at this point to make sure the seasoning is right
