#1: Prep the Ingredients
Use the knife and cutting board to prep the shallot, garlic and jalapeno and set aside. Juice the limes and set aside. Cut each avocado in half, remove the pit and skin placing the avocado flesh/meat into the mixing bowl.
#2: Make the Base
Use the Avocado masher to breakup the avocado into a creamy but chunky base. Add the salt, shallot, garlic and lime juice and distribute evenly. Stir with a spoon and whip until creamy.
#3: Finish and Serve
Taste and finish to your preference — balancing the over/under.
If feel you are lacking salt, acid or spice — add 1/2 the amount you think you should add and iterate until you feel comfortable with the end product.
If you have over done the salt, acid or spice — try balancing with one of the other two ingredients.

Simply pair down the ingredients and you will have a single serving of this delicious snack:
- 1/2 large avocados
- 2 slices of shallot diced
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 slice jalapeno diced
- 1/4 lime juiced
- 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
Follow the directions in the Original recipe to complete.
I’ll make a separate serving without the jalepeño for my kids to enjoy. This doubles as a solid strategy for separating what is “yours” from what is “mine”.
Behind the Scenes
the SooN COOKING origin story
Dear SooN COOKS of the Internet,
The credit goes to my husband, Jason for this recipe. Before I met him, I was throwing all kinds of things in my guac such as cilantro, tomatoes and hot sauce. I was skeptical the first time he made it because he omitted so many of my standard ingredients. But I quickly learned that keeping things simple can truly pay off.
I hope you will give it a try — share your feedback in the comments section!
