Insert the large chopping blade into the large work bowl. With the food processor running on High, drop the garlic and jalapeño pieces through the small feed tube to finely chop. Add the onion and cilantro to the work bowl. Pulse to roughly chop, about 5 times.

Add the avocado, lime juice and salt. Pulse until desired consistency is achieved. Process on High if very smooth consistency is desired.

Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

TIP: Press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the finished guacamole to help prevent browning before serving or while storing.
