PrintEmail Serrano chili peppers are somewhere between a jalapeño and habanero in heat. Most of the volatile pepper oils reside in the seeds and inner membranes that hold them. Folks with less daring palates may remove the seeds before using chili peppers. Ingredients 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped1/2 teaspoon kosher salt1 clove garlic, finely chopped2 serranos or 1 to 2 jalapeños, stemmed, seeded if desired and finely chopped3 large or 4 medium, avocados1/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro1 to 2 tablespoon fresh lime juice Dash or two of hot sauce Instructions Place onion, salt, garlic and serranos in a medium glass bowl. Halve and seed avacoados and use a spoon to scoop their flesh into the bowl. Mash avocados into other ingredients with a fork until well combined but still chunky. Add cilantro, 1 tablespoon lime juice and hot sauce. Mix well. Taste for balance and add more salt, lime or hot sauce as needed.
