Cuisinart original

The Mix speed allows you to control the texture of the guacamole. It is gentle enough to make it chunky if only processed for a short time, or can be creamy if allowed to run a bit longer.


Yield: about 4 cups


1      garlic clove, peeled
½     jalapeño, seeded and cut into
       1-inch pieces
½    small onion, peeled and cut into
       1-inch pieces
2     tablespoons fresh cilantro,
       stems discarded
4     ripe avocados, halved and pitted
2     tablespoons fresh lime juice
½    teaspoon kosher salt
