Knock-Off Chipotle's Guacamole

I've been wanting to make this for a few weeks, because I wanted something to put on my salads since I'm not eating dressings. But I was scared...of onions, of peppers, of avocados, of it being too hot, of the onions being too chunky, etc. Though I basically like guacamole when I go to restaurants. Weird.

3 ripe avocados
1/2 cup of chopped red onions
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
1/3 cup chopped jalapeno
1/8 cup of lemon and lime juice — 80/20 ratio
pinch of salt

Place avocados in a bowl and mash with a fork – you will want to leave it a little chunky. Add all the other ingredients and mix.

Notes: I put it all in the food processor because I didn't want chunks of onion and pepper. I also used an Anaheim pepper so it wasn't too spicy. I would omit the lime and add more salt next time (my preference).
