Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 Teaspoons finely chopped white onion
  • 2 Teaspoons minced jalapeño or serrano chiles, seeds and membranes removed if desired
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
  • 2 Tablespoons cored, seeded, and finely chopped plum tomatoes
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh-squeezed lime juice

Directions

In a medium size bowl, use the back of a spoon to mash 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, 1 teaspoon onion, 1 teaspoon of minced chile, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together against the bottom of the bowl.

Add the avocados and gently mash them with a fork until chunky-smooth. Fold the remaining cilantro, onion, and chile into the mixture. Stir in tomatoes and lime juice, taste to adjust the seasonings, and serve with a basket of warm corn tortilla chips or veggie sticks, for a lighter option.
