Ingredients

  • 3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 jalapeño, cored and finely diced
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh blood orange juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Roma tomato, cored and chopped
  • 1 blood orange, cut into segments, for garnish
  • Chef notes

    Avocados are in season and extremely affordable right now. The smooth flavor of the chiles, sharp onions and bright citrus complement the cool creaminess of the avocados. It's a beautifully balanced dip.

    Technique tip: If your avocados are not ripe enough, put them in the microwave for 5 seconds.

    Swap option: Any citrus will work beautifully; grapefruit would be a wonderful swap.

    Preparation

    1.

    In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork or potato masher to mash avocados to your desired consistency.

    2.

    Stir in jalapeño, onion, lime juice, orange juice, cilantro, salt and cumin until well-mixed. Taste and season with extra salt and pepper if needed. Gently stir in the tomatoes.

    3.

    Garnish with orange segments and serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
