  • 4 medium avocados
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 medium plum tomatoes diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • juice from 1 medium lime
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
  • a dash of cayenne pepper powder or crushed red pepper


  • Slice the avocados in half by running a knife around it lengthwise, just about to the point that you reach the surface of the pit (large seed). Do not slice through the pit. Instead, hold one side of the avocado with your left hand and the other with your right, and begin to to twist both hands in opposite directions. This will let the avocado split in half making the pit fully visible.
  • Remove the pit from the avocado and scrape the avocado using a spoon until you reach the skin.
  • Discard the skin and place the avocado in a bowl.Squeeze lime juice immediately over the avocado to prevent oxidation.
  • Add salt and then mash the avocados.
  • Put-in tomato, onion, cilantro, pepper, and garlic. Fold-in the mixture until well incorporated.
  • Place in a covered container and cool inside a refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  • Serve with tortilla chips. Share and enjoy!
