Avocados with hints

Avocado salad
with options

·       4 ripe Avocados, diced
*an avocado should have just a little give when feeling through the skin and no brown spots when opened, discard any off color spots
i dice them in the skin and scoop out with a spoon.
·       1 small red onion, diced fine
·       1 cup cilantro leaves, diced fine
·       2 cups tomatoes, diced
·       1 Jalapeno, diced
·       2 Chipolte peppers, diced
·       Juice of 2 limes
* i microwave the lime for 30 seconds to get the most juice, i also cut only the top off and run a sharp knife inside the lime to break each segment
·       1/2 teaspoon smoked salt
·       1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

Options that i use:
·       crisp bacon pieces - for this meat eater, not an option
·       cicerone - fried pork skin
·       any other fried, crispy meat
·       shredded cheese to taste
·       more diced peppers

Mix all ingredients lightly together as they are prepared, i like the avocado pieces to still have shape, refrigerate until use the same day.
