Tequila is a strong flavor, so more is not necessarily more in this recipe. You should also use high-quality tequila—something you’d be fine drinking. Mezcal would also work very well, providing an additional smoky note.

  1. 3 ripe Hass avocados
  2. 1/4 cup finely diced white onion
  3. 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  4. 1 lime, juiced
  5. 1 tablespoon tequila
  6. Kosher salt
  1. Scoop the avocado into a bowl. Coarsely mash it with a fork. Stir in the onion, jalapeño, lime juice, tequila, and salt. Serve with tortilla chips and more tequila.
Make Ahead Press plastic wrap firmly against the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate overnight.
