2 ripe avocados
2 tablespoons minced onion or 1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced, or hot

pepper sauce to taste (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Juice of one lemon or lime

Cut the avocado in half around the pit and twist to separate. Cut each half into thirds lengthwise. Remove the sections from the pit, remove the skin, and place the avocado pieces in a bowl. Mash with a fork. Mix in the other ingredients and adjust the seasonings to your taste. Serve immediately (avocado starts to blacken quickly, within half an hour or so.)

Yield: Approximately 1 cup – depending on size of avocados.
