2 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced
1/2 onion, minced
1/2 cup pineapple, diced small
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped.
salt & pepper to taste
• 1 ripe tomato, diced
• pinch of cayenne pepper
Cut the avocados in half, remove seeds, score with a blunt knife, and scoop out flesh with a spoon. Use a fork to roughly mash the avocado, but DON’T overdo, since you want it to be CHUNKY. Sprinkle with salt and lime juice first to keep it from browning.
Then add the onion, pineapple, cilantro, black pepper, and tomatoes (if using).
Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation from the air reaching it. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
If you want to add tomato to your guacamole, add it just before serving.
