  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 ripe Hass avocados, halved, pitted and diced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice


Step 1

Put the garlic, pine nuts, serrano and some salt in a mortar and pestle and mash to a chunky, pesto-like consistency. Add the cilantro and continue to mash; the pesto should be very coarse.

Step 2

Put the avocados and lime juice in a bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Gently fold in the pesto until just combined, being careful not to mash the avocado too much.
