For Chile Paste:

For Guacamole:


  1. Make the chile paste: Grind the onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and salt together in a molcajete (I used a mortar and pestle, but chopped ingredients together first) until all the ingredients are very finely ground.
  2. Cut each avocado in half, remove pits, then cut a cross-hatch pattern into the flesh and scoop out the flesh into a medium bowl with a spoon. Stir in chile paste, then tomatoes,
  3. cilantro and onion. Mix to desired consistency. Squeeze in some lime juice if desired. Check for seasonings and add salt if desired.
  4. If not using immediately cover the surface with plastic wrap to minimize browning.
