  • avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • juice from 1/2 lime


  • Smash avocado
  • Add garlic salt, salsa and lime juice
  • Mix
  • Serve with chips


Tip: cut avocados in half and cut small squares in the avocado, but not going through the skin. Then scoop out with a spoon. This makes it easier to smash the avocado.
Tip: You don't have to be exact with all the measurements. Use as much or little as you want to taste.
