1

In a molcajete, grind together the onions, chiles, chopped cilantro and salt to a paste.

2

Cut the avocados into halves, remove the pits and spoon the flesh into the molcajete. Mash the avocado into the onion-chile mixture until it is a uniform texture, but not smooth (it should still have some lumps).

3

Stir in the tomatoes and lime juice, adjust the seasoning and top with the cilantro leaves.

Molcajetes, lava stone mortar and pestles, are widely available at Latino markets and selected cookware stores.
