This recipe is a real family favorite. It comes from a wonderful restaurant in Matamoros, Mexico. It’s delicious as an appetizer when spooned into a fresh warm corn tortilla or scooped up with tortilla chips. It also great as is, as a side dishes or salad course with grilled meats, or served on wafer thin slices of raw beef. Be sure to use firm, ripe avocados and make it as spicy as you like by altering the amount of fresh chiles.
