I try to keep in mind that I keep the avocado's a 2 to 1 ratio to the tomato's. Ex: 4 avocado, 2- 3 tomato's, extra pepper 1/2 to a whole lime juiced. This recipe is extremely flexible. You can scale it up or down for correct serving size. Your spices and seasonings will all depend on your taste. All of the above will give you a place to start. Use less, then add more. ALWAYS easier to add these things a little at a time. Taking away isn't really an option. You can throw in extra produce, if you happen to get a little too much of something though. Don't just trash it. Save a pit or two to add to bowl for storage to keep color fresh.
