Ingredients
  • 5 large ripe avocados
  • 2 green onions (diced)
  • 1/2 small red onion (diced or sliced)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil + more as needed
  • 1 medium lime (squeezed + more to taste)
  • 1/2 c fresh tomato salsa
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper (diced without seeds if you like it mild, or with seeds if you like it very spicy. You may use Serrano chiles but keep mind they are about 5 times hotter than the jalapenos)
  • 1/3 c fresh cilantro leaves (or to taste)
  • 4 wedges lime (for serving)
  • 3 tbsp fresh chives (snipped)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper (+ more to taste)
Instructions
  1. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Reserve a couple of them.
  2. Inside the shell cut the avocado in half lengthwise.
  3. Using a spoon scoop out the avocado from its shell and transfer the flesh to a bowl.
  4. Add the green onion, red onion, chili pepper, lime juice and cilantro to the bowl with the avocado. Drizzle with the olive oil and gently fold together.

  5. Season with sea salt to your taste.

  6. Adjust seasonings with more sea salt and lime juice and taste again until happy.

  7. Garnish with the snipped chives. Serve it with fresh tomato Salsa on top, or cover it with thinly sliced lemons or limes to save for later and prevent browning.

  8. Serve with freshly cracked black pepper on top.
Recipe Notes

Make sure you use tight plastic wrap on top before refrigerating.
