  • 1/4 c. finely chopped onion
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 1-2 roma tomatoes seeded and diced small
  • 1 ancho pepper seeded and diced small
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice or the juice of one lime
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro


  • Find a medium bowl and put the onions, garlic, tomatoes and pepper inside.
  • Cut open the avocados, and place the flesh into a separate bowl. Mash the avocados to desired consistency. I like mine a little lumpy, not completely smooth.
  • Pour the lime juice over the avocados and stir it in.
  • Then you can add the avocados to the onion and tomato mixture, along with the salt, cumin, and cilantro. Gently blend it all together.
  • The flavors will meld together nicely if you leave it sit for an hour or so before serving. But if you're like my family, it may be hard to leave it that long.
  • Serve with whole grain tortilla chips or pita chips.


Makes about 2 cups. (2 Tbsp. per serving)
