Serves: 4
  • 1 1/2 - 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, diced finely
  • 1/2 plum tomato, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 3-4 tbsp (loosely packed) cilantro, minced
  • juice of one lime
  • salt, to taste
  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the avocado in half from top to bottom. Twist to separate, and remove the pit by whacking your knife (carefully!) into the pit and twisting to remove. Scoop out the avocado meat from the peel with a spoon and add to a bowl.
  2. Add the pepper, tomato, onion and cilantro to the avocado and using a fork or a potato masher, mix everything together until the avocado breaks down and starts to become creamy. Season with salt and sprinkle with the lime juice; then stir again and serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
