total prep


  • 4 large ripe avocados, preferably Hass
  • 3 ripe tomatoes, seeded, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 2 jalapeno chilies, seeded, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 pinch of cayenne or ground aji amarillo


  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the flesh. Transfer to a large wooden or metal bowl. Add salt and mash with the back of a wooden spoon until desired texture is reached; I like mine a bit chunky. Stir in remaining ingredients. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt.
