We had enchiladas tonight, and John made them. He's a pretty good cook. No, a very good cook. The best part is that he wants to do the dishes afterwards. jk :)

And, I made guacamole. It was really yummy, so yummy that John declared he could eat a bucketful.

1⁄4 cup peeled, finely chopped white onions

1 jalapeño, seeded and minced

1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro


1 medium hass avocado

1 small tomato, coarsely chopped
1. Combine half the onions, half the jalapeño, and half the cilantro in a mortar or food processor, season with about 1⁄2 tsp. salt, then grind or pulse into a smooth paste. Transfer to a serving bowl.
2. Cut avocado in half lengthwise, then remove and discard pit. Make crosshatch incisions in avocado pulp with a paring knife. Scoop pulp out with a spoon, then combine with onion mixture. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
3. Stir in remaining onions, jalapeño, and cilantro, then gently mix in tomatoes. Adjust seasoning with salt and serve immediately.

I added about a teaspoon of lime juice. And, as I have no blender, food processor or mortar (yet), I did it all on the cutting board. I minced, re-minced, and then minced again. All things considered, it was really good!
