4 avocados ripe about 2 pounds
½ cup tomato peeled, seeded and finely chopped
¼ cup red onion finely diced
¼ cup cilantro
3 tablespoons lemon juice or lime
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon chile powder
2 jalapeño peppers seeded & minced
- Peel and pit the avocados; then use a fork to coarsely mash them in a bowl.
- Mix in the lemon juice and then the remainder of the ingredients. Stir until well combined, but do not over mix into a smooth paste. Using a food processor tends to turn the mixture to mush.
- Chill for 30 to 45 minutes before serving.
