fresh jalapeño or serrano chile
minced, including seeds
Avocado From Mexico
halved and pitted
coarsely chopped, divided
Mash the onion, chile, salt (the coarseness of kosher salt will help you make the paste), and half of the cilantro to a paste in a molcajete or mortar. You can also mince and mash the ingredients together on a cutting board with a large knife or a fork, and then transfer the paste to a bowl. Stir in the lime juice. Score the flesh in the avocado halves in a crosshatch pattern (not through the skin) with a knife and then scoop it with a spoon into the mortar or bowl. Add the rest of the cilantro and most of the almonds and blue cheese, toss well, and mash coarsely with a pestle or fork. Season to taste with additional lime juice and salt. Garnish with the rest of the almonds and blue cheese. This guacamole is best served right away.
