►  Makes 2 to 3 Snack Portions
2 ripe avocados (ideally, the Hass variety)

½ red chile

1 small green chile

1 garlic clove (optional)

juice and zest of ½ unwaxed lime

½ tsp sea salt

pinch of freshly ground white pepper

 

TO SERVE

vegetable sticks (such as peppers, carrots, or celery)

vegan tortilla chips or crackers

Halve the avocados and remove the pits. Scrape out the flesh from the skins with a spoon, put it into a small bowl, and mash with a fork. Seed the red chile and finely chop. Slice the green chile into little rings. Peel the garlic (if using) and either chop very finely or crush in a garlic press.

 

Add the red chile, garlic, lime juice, and zest to the avocado. Stir well and season to taste with salt and pepper. Decorate with green chile rings. Then take along whatever you like dipping in it: vegetable sticks, tortilla chips, or crackers.
