Excellent dip!! Also, very healthy, contains no oil and avocado has all the good fat! :)


2 ripe Haas avocados
1 roma tomato diced into small pieces
1/2 red or white onion finely chopped
1 lemon or 2 small limes
1-2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno finely chopped(remove the seeds, else it will be very hot!)
salt and pepper to taste


Cut the avocado length wise, all around with the seed in the middle. Twist the avacodo with both hands, one going clockwise and the other hand going anti-clockwise. Remove the seed. Scoop out all the ripe avocado with a spoon into a big bowl.

With a fork, start breaking the avocado into smaller pieces but NOT smashing it. It should look chunky. Squeeze the lemon or lime over the avocado. Put in the diced onions, tomatoes, cilantro, salt and pepper and fold it in gently in such a way that the avocado does NOT break further. Fold it till well blended.

Its ready to be eaten with tortilla chips or even pita chips! ( baked pita chips recipe next!)
