Look for ripe avocados (unripe are hard to the touch) that feel heavy for their size and are free of bruises and dark, sunken spots.
Slice fruit vertically around the pit and twist to break in two. With a sharp motion, chop a knife 1/4-inch (2 mm) deep into the pit and twist to remove. Scoop out the flesh or score lengthways or crossways to create strips or cubes.
Mix mashed avocado, lime juice, tomatoes, and hot peppers—for an extra kick add a touch of garlic and hot sauce.
