  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 2 medium Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 poblano pepper or 2 jalapeños, diced with seeds*
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 limes, juiced (1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


    1. Cut avocados in half, remove the seeds, and scrape the meat into a large bowl. Smash the avocado with a fork, and leave a few chunks if desired.
    2. To the avocado in the bowl, add the tomatoes, onion, peppers, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and cumin. Gently fold to combine ingredients and serve immediately.




Poblano peppers are spicier than jalapeños. Both will work depending on what is available at your store.
