  • 1 lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 Avocado From Mexico halved and pitted
  • 1/4 smoked almonds coarsely chopped, divided

  1. Mash the onion, chile, salt (the coarseness of kosher salt will help you make the paste), and half of the cilantro to a paste in a molcajete or mortar.
  2. You can also mince and mash the ingredients together on a cutting board with a large knife or a fork, and then transfer the paste to a bowl.
  3. Stir in the lime juice.
  4. Score the flesh in the avocado halves in a crosshatch pattern (not through the skin) with a knife and then scoop it with a spoon into the mortar or bowl.
  5. Add the rest of the cilantro and most of the almonds and blue cheese, toss well, and mash coarsely with a pestle or fork.
  6. Season to taste with additional lime juice and salt.
  7. Garnish with the rest of the almonds and blue cheese.
