If you use a food processor to make this, there’s no need to chop the kale fine. If you aren't using a food processor, be sure to chop the kale and onions very well.

  • Juice of 2 limes about 2 tablespoons
  • 4 small Lacinato kale leaves stems removed and roughly chopped
  • ½ cup white or yellow onion chopped (or less to taste)
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 small Serrano or jalapeno deseeded and chopped
  • 3 large ripe avocados halved, pitted and peeled
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt or to taste


  • In the bowl of your food processor, combine the lime juice, kale, onion, cilantro, Serrano and salt. Pulse until combined.
  • Add the avocado and pulse until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Taste for seasoning and add salt or lime juice if necessary.


If you do not have a food processor, make sure the kale and cilantro is well chopped and combine ingredients with a potato masher or mash well with a fork.
