Tyler Florence's Guacamole

adapted from: Tyler Florence

5 ripe Hass avocados

juice of 2 limes

1/2 small white onion, finely chopped

1 Serrano chile, ribbed, seeded and finely chopped

1/2 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped

Kosher salt

freshly ground black pepper

1 radish, thinly shaved


Slice the avocados all the way around from top to bottom and twist the halves to separate them.  Carefully tap the pit with a sharp knife, twist, and it will come right out.  Scoop the avocado flesh into a large bowl.  Add some of the lime juice as you go, to prevent the avocados from browning.

Add the remaining lime juice, onion, Serrano chile, cilantro, a pinch of Kosher salt and some freshly ground black pepper.  Use a fork to mash the mixture, leaving some chunks of avocado for texture.  Transfer to a bowl for serving and  garnish with the radish shavings.  Makes about 4 cups, depending on the avocados. 

Jenn's Notes: I used less onion and I used a yellow instead of a white onion.  I used a small jalapeno instead of a Serrano.  This is simple and delicious.  When refrigerating leftover guacamole, press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface and that will help keep it from turning brown.
