Avocado Dip

Avocados are known as 'pears' on the English-speaking caribbean islands and often eaten mashed between two slices of bread. This practice came about because avocado was used as a substitute for butter in the old days before refrigeration.


-2 small avocados or one large caribbean avocado, halvedand smashed

-1 large tomato, de-seeded and chopped

-1 onion, finely diced

-1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice (lemon can be substituted)

-2 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander

-1 tep Iguana Red Cayenne Pepper Suace

- Salt and pepper to taste


Scoop the flesh of the avocados into a bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mix together ( allow the avocado flesh to remain a little chunky.) Keep chilled until ready to serve. Serve with plantain chips or Tostones(fried green plantain slices)
