This is a mild version—for serious spice, add more jalapeño or consider adding the seeds, where most of the heat is stored. To keep the color bright green, place an avocado pit on top or cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill; remove just before serving, and garnish, if desired. Prep: 15 minutes.
