  • 2 ripe avocados

  • 1/4 cup diced tomato
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Remove peel and seed from avocado and place in medium sized bowl.
  • Add lime juice to avocado and smash together with a fork until fairly smooth. A few lumps are OK.
  • Add the remaining ingredients cilantro, tomato and salt and stir together.
  • Serve immediately with pita or tortilla chips.


*Selecting the perfect avocado is crucial for this recipe!  A ripe avocado will turn from its dark green color to an almost black-green shade.  You will also need to do a squeeze test in the store because non-ripe avocados are hard as a rock and will not work in this recipe.  They should feel a bit soft but not squishy.  If you buy a few that are not quite ripe just leave on the counter to continue ripening.  Store them in the fridge to slow the process down.
