The FareTrade's Guacamole



1 Avocado

1/2 Bunch, Cilantro - Chopped

1 Lime - Juiced

1 Jalapeño - Fine Diced or Grated on Micro-Plane

1/4 Red Onion - Fine Dice

2 Teaspoons, Aleppo Pepper - Crushed

Salt - To Taste



Combine all ingredients - minus salt + Aleppo - in a mortar + pestle. Combine to desired smoothness.  We prefer to leave the avocado chunky.

If you do not have a mortar + pestle, combine ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Using the back of a fork, mash and stir the ingredients to desired smoothness.

Add Salt.

Top with Aleppo.

Serve with your favorite chips.

Tip: Use a spoon to remove Avocado from its shell.
