Description: Classic Mexican preparation that is close to what you will find in Northern Mexico

Serving size: 4

Preparation time: about 30 minutes or less


4 ripe avocados, peeled, seeded 
1 tsp. ground cumin 
1 cup tomato, peeled, seeded and diced small
½ cup sweet onion, minced fine
2 tbsp. Serrano Chile, seeded, minced fine
¼ cup cilantro leaves, chopped
¼ cup lime juice, fresh squeezed
2 tsp. coarse salt, Diamond Crystal Kosher salt is preferred
¼ tsp. ground white pepper
½ tsp. hot sauce

1 lime sliced
3-4 cilantro branches


Cut avocado in large chunks and mash coarsely in a Molcajete, a stone mortar and pestle. You may also use a bowl and the back of a spoon or tines of a fork. Add the remaining ingredients and blending gently - leaving some small chunks is fine. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired.
