  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
  • 3 ripe avocados (peeled, pitted)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1/4 cup red onion (peeled, minced)
  • 1 serrano chile (seeded, minced)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves (finely chopped)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Pico de Gallo:
  • 3 tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 small white onion (peeled, finely chopped)
  • 1/2 jalapeno (seeded, finely minced)
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled, minced)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • Kosher salt (to taste)
To Assemble:
  • 4 flour tortillas (8-inch)
  • 1 bunch scallions (divided, half sliced in 1-inch pieces, half chopped)
  • 1 can black beans (15 ounces, drained, rinsed)
  • Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • For the Guacamole: In a large bowl, add the avocado, lime juice, red onion, serrano chile, and cilantro, and mash with a fork to combine. The consistency should be relatively smooth with small lumps of avocado. Season with salt and pepper.
  • For the Pico de Gallo: In a small bowl, add the tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, garlic, and lime juice, and mix to combine. Season with salt.
  • For the Tortilla Chips: Cut the tortilla chips into tombstone shapes and place on the baking sheet. Place in the oven and broil until the tortilla chips are slightly golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  • To Assemble: With scissors or the tip of the knife, cut 1-inch pieces of scallions and make several thin slits in the top half of the scallion to make them look like grass.
  • In a 9x13-inch baking dish layer the guacamole, then the pico de gallo, and finish with the black beans. Top with the chopped scallions and 1-inch pieces of grass. Chill until ready to serve. Place the tombstone tortilla chips in the dip before serving.
  • Tip: Use a potato masher to easily mash the avocados. Add your favorite taco toppings, like shredded cheddar cheese or sour cream, in different layers to customize the dip!
