What You Need From Your Kitchen:
Fork or potato masher
Hass avocados, ripe
Freshly ground black pepper
* Have your A.G. (Adult Guide) work with you on this
Step 1:Set Up
Have on hand a cutting board, a large bowl, a sharp knife, a small cup, and a potato masher or a fork. Wash the plum tomatoes and avocados in water and pat dry.
Step 2:Chop The Ingredients
Have an adult chop the plum tomatoes. Have an adult mince (very finely chop) the garlic cloves. Squeeze the juice from the lime into the small cup and set aside.
Step 3:Mash The Avocados
Have an adult slice the avocados in half and remove the pit. Remove the skin of the avocados. Place the peeled avocados in a large bowl and mash with the back of a fork or a potato masher. Don’t mash them completely — leave some chunks!
Step 4:Combine The Ingredients
Stir in the tomatoes, minced garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning. To prevent browning, cover the entire surface of the bowl with plastic wrap. This can be left at room temperature for several hours, or refrigerated overnight.
It is best served fresh with your favorite baked tortilla chips!
