Laura Bush’s Guacamole

Wear gloves when working with jalapenos, the former First Lady (SMU ’68) reminds us!

4 ripe avocadoes (preferably Haas)
1 fresh lime, juiced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
2 medium vine-ripened tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 jalapeños, seeded and diced
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Halve and pit avocadoes, scooping out flesh into a medium-size bowl. Use fork to mash to desired consistency before adding all remaining ingredients.

Cover mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving with tortilla chips.

Serves 6 to 8
