  • 4 ripe avocados not too hard or mushy
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro I use Josie's Organics
  • 3 limes juiced
  • 3/4 cup diced tomato optional
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped jarred jalepenos mild or spicy
  • 3 tbsp brine from jalepeƱo jar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • In a large bowl, add the avocados first. I like to use a potato masher. Mash them well.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, stir until combined.
  • Enjoy with veggies, chips, on a salad, in tacos, etc!


Stores well in the fridge for up to 3 days. The lime juice prevents it from turning brown.
