This is a great recipe – I sometimes add a jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced to it – but it needs to sit for an hour or so.   Press plastic wrap right up against the top of the finished product when refrigerating it so it doesn’t discolor…

Ingredients

·                                 3 avocados – peeled, pitted, and mashed
·                                 1 lime, juiced
·                                 1 tbs zest from lime
·                                 1 tsp kosher salt
·                                 1/2 cup minced shallot
·                                 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
·                                 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced fine
·                                 1 teaspoon minced garlic
·                                 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions

1.                       In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice and zest, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
