  • 3 ripe avocados should be soft to touch
  • 1 large or two small Roma tomatoes diced
  • cup red onion finely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro, packed
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper more or less depending on how spicy you like it
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • Sea Salt and cracked pepper to taste


  • Remove pits and scoop out insides of avocado into a small bowl. Gently mash.
  • Add all other ingredients and stir well to combine. Add more seasoning to taste if necessary.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


Note: I am a big fan of cilantro and really add quite a bit. Start out a bit lighter than the ½ cup if you are a bit unsure at first. I even add a bit more at times.
