Serves 6 servings

4 medium avocados
1 small tomato, chopped
1/2 small red onion, minced
1 tablespoon or to taste Gochujang (Korean chili paste) or 1/2 jalapeño, minced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus more to taste


Slice the avocados lengthwise around the pit and carefully remove the pit. Using a large spoon, scoop out the avocado flesh and place it into a large bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash the avocado until as chunky or smooth as you like it.

Mix in the tomato, onion, Gochujang, salt and cilantro. Stir in the lime juice. Taste and season with more salt and/or lime juice if needed and serve.
