This true blue Mexican dish is extremely easy to make with recipes typically calling for avocadoes, chopped onions, salt, lime juice and occasionally cilantro. The recipe on Orangette elevates this classic with the addition of lime zest and serrano among other ingredients that will please even the most skeptical of eaters. This creamy concoction usually eaten with tortilla chips may even be your next favourite mid-week pick-me-up.
