Did you know that avocadoes used to have an erotic significance for the Aztecs? Women could not collect the fruits since they symbolised testicles?

Preparation

  1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the seeds.
  2. Use a spoon to extract the pulp from the avocado, place it in a large bowl, add the lemon juice, and mash to obtain a puree. You can leave small pieces to give it a little consistency.
  3. Add the minced onion, the minced chillies or chilli peppers, the crushed garlic, the minced coriander, tomatoes, and salt to taste.
  4. Mix well and serve.
