Hard-boiled eggs make a surprisingly delicious addition to Martha's go-to guacamole.


  • 3 ripe but firm avocados, peeled and pitted

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • ¼ cup chopped white onion

  • ¼ cup chopped jalapeno

  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 cup halved or quartered cherry tomatoes

  • 2 chopped hard-cooked eggs

  • Plantain chips, for serving


  1. In a medium bowl, lightly mash avocados. Add lime juice, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Fold in cherry tomatoes and eggs. Serve with plantain chips. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container with plastic directly on the surface for up to 1 day. If making ahead, hold off on stirring in eggs until just before serving.
