Ingredients

  • 8 med ripe avocados *see pro tip above
  • 1-2 limes *juiced
  • 1 jalapeno *roasted and diced
  • 1/2 med red onion *diced
  • 2-3 med garlic cloves *minced or crushed
  • 2 roma tomatoes *diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro *chopped, about 3/4 cup
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut Avocados in half and remove seed. With a small knife, cut squares in flesh of avocado, making sure to not cut through skins. With a soup spoon, remove squares into a mixing bowl by scraping with edge of spoon between skin and avocado flesh.
  • Squeeze lime juice over avocado squares.
  • Roasting jalapeno is an optional step but adds a wonderful smoky taste and mellows the heat a bit. To roast, place jalapeƱo over open flame using tongs and turning once skin begins to darken and pop, roasting all sides. Dice and add to avocado.
  • Cut and dice remaining ingredients, add to avocado. Stir to incorporate veggies well.
  • Serve with chips or along side any Mexican meal.
