Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (fresh, finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons yellow onions (finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons jalapeno (or serrano chilies, minced)
  • Salt to taste (sea salt or kosher salt is always best, in my opinion!)
  • 2 large avocados (peeled and seeded)
  • 2 tablespoons plum tomato (finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice (fresh squeezed)

Steps to Make It

  1. Mash together 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, 1 teaspoon of the onion, 1 teaspoon of the minced chiles, and a dash of sea salt or kosher salt in the bottom of a medium-size bowl.

  2. Add the avocados and gently mash with a fork until chunky-smooth.

  3. Fold the remaining cilantro, onion, and chile into the mixture.

  4. Stir in the tomato and lime juice, adjust the seasonings to taste, and serve with a basket of warm tortilla chips.
