Loved this! Tangy, spicy and the fresh coriander/cilantro gives it that finishing touch that balances out the jalapeno fire just nicely. As usual for us, I added more garlic and loved it. I took to my mix with the stick blender becuase my avocados were a tad firm for mashing with a fork (um... understatement) and it all went from one extreme to another as the end result was a bit too soft, but heck it's the taste that counts so next time I just have to choose my avocados a little better. We had this as part of a tapas dinner and it was great. Please see my Rating System: 4 wonderful stars for a great recipe that I will have pleasure in making again. Thanks!
