    Split the avocados and scoop the flesh into a medium bowl.  Mash with a fork or potato masher until mostly smooth.  Stir in the onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and jalapeño and continue mashing until it has a fluffy whipped texture.  Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.  Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with thinly sliced lime.  Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
