Ingredients

  • 2 guajillo chiles stemmed seeded, sliced into ¼” rings
  • 8 scallions roots and ends discarded white and light green parts sliced into ¼” rounds
  • 2 Tbsps vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsps sesame seeds
  • 3 ripe Avocados from Mexico halved pitted, meat scooped out and diced
  • 2 Tbsps lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher or sea salt or to taste
  • 1 cup pineapple peeled cored and diced
  • 1 cup jicama peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup Japanese-style peanuts or coated and crunchy peanuts of your choice

Instructions

  1. Set a medium-sized skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in the oil and let it heat for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Once it is hot, add the guajillo chiles and let them cook gently, for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly until they look a bit crisp and their color has changed.
  3. Add the scallions, mix with the chiles and the by now flavored oil, and cook for another couple minutes, until the scallions begin to wilt.
  4. Incorporate the sesame seeds, mix again, and cook for another couple minutes until seeds have begun to brown lightly. Turn off the heat and scrape into a small bowl.
  5. In a medium mixing bowl, add the avocado, lime juice and salt, and gently mash and mix with a fork.
  6. Incorporate the pineapple, jícama and Japanese-style peanuts. Scrape the avocado mix onto a serving bowl and spoon the guajillo chile, scallion and sesame seed mixture all over the top.
