From 4 Basic Facts About Type 2 Diabetes Blog

Serves 16 (2 tablespoons per serving)


• Juice of 1 lime

• 1 clove garlic, minced

• ¼ teaspoon salt

• ¼ teaspoon cumin

• ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

• 3 avocados

• 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced

• ½ small red onion, diced

• ½ jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (optional)


• In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, garlic, salt, cumin and cayenne (if using).

• Slice through the avocado lengthwise until you feel your knife hit the pit. Continue slicing around the pit in a full circle around the avocado. Twist the avocado until it releases from the pit and you have 2 halves. Use a spoon to remove the pit, then scoop the flesh into bowl with lime juice and spices. Repeat with remaining avocados.

• Use a potato masher to mash avocado with spices until you reach the desired consistency. You can make it smooth or leave it a little chunky if you like.

• Stir in tomatoes, onion and jalapeno (if using). Serve with sliced veggies or baked chips.
