1 jalapeño or serrano chile, seeds and membrane removed, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 - 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 ripe avocados
Mix together the chile, onion, lime juice, cilantro and salt in a medium bowl. Cut the avocados in half. Remove and discard the seed. Carefully score the avocado into a 1/2-inch dice while still in the skin. Remove the diced avocado with a spoon and add to the bowl. Using a fork, gently mash and mix the avocado with the other ingredients until combined, but still chunky. Taste for seasoning.
