What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped yellow onions
  • 2 teaspoons minced jalapeno or serrano chilies
  • Salt, to taste (sea salt or kosher salt is always best, in my opinion!)
  • 2 large ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped plum tomato (1 small tomato)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Warm tortilla chips, for serving

How 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.
