  • Potato Masher


  • 4 large ripe hass avocado
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 jalapeño seeds and stems removed and finely chopped
  • 1 ripe medium sized tomato seeds removed and diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced small
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice from about 1 ½ limes, or more if needed


  • Remove the stone/seed from the avocado and using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the avocados into a shallow serving bowl, discarding any bruised, browned areas.
  • Using a potato masher, or fork, mash up the avocado until it reaches the consistency you like (I like mine to have some lumps).
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients to the avocado. Stir to combine.
  • Taste and add additional salt (I often add up to ½ teaspoon more), until the flavors really pop. If it needs more zip, add a little more lime juice (or, if it tastes too limey already, don’t worry—it will mellow out after a brief rest).
  • Serve and enjoy!!
