    Cocina De La Familia by Marilyn Tausend

    Recipe Introduction

    In the cookbook the author states that is recipe is from a gentleman, Florencio Perea, who was a dishwasher in a Dallas restaurant in 1950. His recipe was so good that a patron tipped him $20.00.

    List of Ingredients

    1 medium ripe tomato (I used 1/2 cup canned diced)
    2 Tablespoons finely minced white onion
    1 fresh jalapeno chile, seeded and finely chopped (be sure to wash your hands well after handling this chile...and whatever you do, don't rub your eyes!)
    3 very ripe avacados
    1/4 cup lightly packed, finely minced, cilantro leaves
    juice of 1/2 lime
    1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    sea salt


    Place the tomato, onion, and chile in a molcajete or a bowl and mash a bit but leave it chunky. Halve the avocados lengthwise, remove the seeds, and scoop all the flesh into the tomato mixture. Mix together with the cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, and salt to taste.
