  • 1 small shallot minced
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon Diamond Crystal brand kosher
  • 3 medium Hass avocados
  • freshly ground pepper
  • Aleppo pepper optional


  • Gather and prep your ingredients.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the minced shallot, salt, and lime juice. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • Pit and peel the avocados. Take half of the flesh and mash it in a bowl with a fork.
  • Pour the lime mixture into the bowl and combine with the mashed avocado.
  • Dice the remainder of the avocado flesh into ¾-inch cubes, and gently incorporate into the mixture in the bowl. (Or mash it up more if you want creamier guacamole.)
  • Add freshly ground pepper and Aleppo pepper (if desired) to taste.


Put this condiment on any and everything, or just serve it with some crudités.
