Avocado Cilantro Dip

This was a creation devised from my desire to use the delicious smelling cilantro growing in the deck container.  Avocado is a source of healthy fat, but I can't tolerate too much of it, so I need to use self-control when this dip is available.  

1 ripe Hass avocado, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
2 Tablespoons chopped red onion
2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves                                         
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Puree all ingredients until smooth.
