Makes: 21/2 cups / Preparation time: 15 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

You can tone down the chile peppers and cayenne in this recipe to your own taste. Good tomatoes are hard to come by this time of year — omit them if desired.


■4 avocados, halved, pitted

■1/2 cup chopped white onion

■2 small tomatoes, diced

■Juice of 1 large lime

■1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro leaves or more to taste

■1 jalapeño or Serrano chile pepper, seeded, chopped

■1 to 2 large clove garlic, peeled, pressed or finely minced

■1 teaspoon salt

■1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

■11/2 teaspoons favorite chili powder, optional


Scoop out the flesh of the avocados and place it in a bowl. Mash it lightly — it should be a little chunky.

Add the onion, tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeño and garlic. Stir lightly to combine.

Stir in the salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and chili powder if using. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Cover with plastic wrap, placing the wrap directly on the dip, and place another lid on top. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.
