  • 2 avocados large or 3 smaller
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice fresh or bottled
  • 1 tablespoon diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon diced jalapeno ribs and seed removed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Cut avocado in half and remove pit and peel skin
  • Dice into large chunks and add to bowl along with remaining ingredients except salt and pepper
  • Mash to desired consistency (I like it pretty smooth) and taste
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and mix again before serving


  1. Can be made up to a couple of hours ahead of time and stored with plastic wrap pressed tightly over the top to remove any air and then with a lid on the container
  2. See above blog posts for tips on shortcuts
  3. Any of the ingredient quantities can be adjusted to taste.  Play around and make it your own.
