I used 1/2 of a jalapeno, yellow onion (not much) and a tomato, put everything in the food processor except the avocado, mixed lightly so it was still a little chunky, then did the avocado the same way and mixed the two together. Very easy and good.

How To Keep Fresh: Avocados

Ripen on the counter (or in a paper bag* if you want to speed up the process).

Be sure to check avocados often, as they can go from unripe, to perfectly ripe, to soft and moldy before you know it.

As soon as they yield to gentle pressure, you can move them into the refrigerator, where they should last for a few more days.

Depending on how you plan to use them, if you mash them with some lemon or lime juice, the mixture can be frozen for later when making guacamole or dip.
