Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 tomato
  • 1 serrano or jalapeño pepper or to taste
  • ½ medium red onion optional
  • 1 lime
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 avocados
  • A small handful of cilantro


  1. Finely chop the tomato, chilies, garlic, and onion, and put them in a bowl. Squeeze in the lime, add some salt and pepper, and mash everything a bit with a fork.
  2. Open the avocados and scoop out the flesh into the bowl. Mince the cilantro and toss it in. Mash it all together, making sure to leave some un-mashed pieces of avocado.
  3. There is no step 3, unless you want to sell it to some fools for $14.
