Pico de Gallo and Guacamole


Serves 2-4

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Roma tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, deseeded and chopped
  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 lime, juiced

Cut the avocados in half and scoop out the insides. Place in a mixing bowl. Mash the avocados with a fork, leaving them slightly lumpy. Remember to reserve a pit to place in the bottom of your serving bowl to prevent oxidation.  

Chop onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro. Add salt and lime juice. (This will be your Pico de Gallo.)  Add this mixture to the mashed avocados to create guacamole. Taste and adjust accordingly. 

Place reserved pit in the bottom of the bowl with guacamole. Cover with plastic wrap directly touching the guacamole.
