  • 4 Avocados medium, mashed
  • ¾ cup Tomato diced
  • ¼ cup Cilantro finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Red Onion finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Jalapeno Pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Serrano Pepper finely chopped
  • 1 Lime juiced
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon White Vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt


  • Wash all produce and prep according to ingredient list.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix by hand until well combined.
  • Serve right away or cover and place in the refrigerator to allow flavors to meld. If refrigerating, mix again before serving.


I always recommend using the freshest ingredients possible in this recipe.
Your avocados should be ripe and should have a slight give to them when squeezing to check for ripeness.
I recommend leaving the seeds of the peppers in, but if you prefer less heat/spice, remove the seeds.
