Quick, healthy dip made from avocados


  • 2 Hass avocados or 1 Fuerte
  • 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons of lime juice)
  • 1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, minced (seeded for less heat)
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Hold the avocado in your palm, caressing it. Use a sharp knife to cut around it, longitudinally, to create two symmetrical halves.
  2. Twist the halves apart and use your knife to knock the pit out of whatever half it is stuck in.
  3. Scoop out the avocado guts with a spoon or just squeeze them out like I do.
  4. Squeeze the lime all over the avocado guts.
  5. Mash the avocado all up with a fork.
  6. Add the other stuff.
  7. Give it a whirl and add some more lime juice or salt if you think it needs it.
