  1. Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh into to a medium bowl. Then add the onion, lime juice, salt, cilantro, tomatoes, and jalapeno, if using. Mix together, breaking up the avocado with the spoon, leaving it chunky (or blending until smooth, if preferred). Taste for seasoning. Serve immediately with our Tortilla Chips or cover with plastic wrap touching the guacamole, and chill until ready to serve.
