  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 6 sprigs of cilantro
  • 2 key limes
  • 1 tablespoon of habanero chile hot sauce or the hot sauce of your choice
  • A pinch of salt if needed
  • Corn chips crackers or toast for serving.


  • Finely chop the garlic clove.
  • Remove the cilantro leaves from the stem and chop.
  • Squeeze the juice from the limes into a mixing bowl.
  • Remove the flesh from the avocados and add to the bowl.
  • Then, place all of the ingredients in the mixing bowl except the salt.
  • Mash with a fork until you get the desired consistency. We like it a little chunky. You can also blend it in the blender if you prefer it creamy.
  • Check the salt and add as needed.
  • Serve in your favorite serving bowl for dipping. You can also use it as a topping for nachos.


  • Use 2 tablespoons of hot sauce if you want it really spicy.
  • You can serve the dip on toast as a tasty variation of avocado toast.
  • It will last for 1 day in the refrigerator. The lime juice will keep it from going brown.
  • It does not freeze well.
