Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the seeds.
  2. Hold 1 avocado half in the palm of one hand and with the other hand, mash the avocado in its shell with a fork; then scoop the avocado into a bowl with a spoon, scraping out the creamy pulp.
  3. Discard the shell and repeat with the remaining avocado halves.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well; cover tightly with plastic wrap to prevent discoloration.
