Prep time

5 min.

  • Half a ripe avocado, pitted, meat scooped out and sliced
  • 1 slice of bread, lightly toasted
  • Red pepper flakes or 1 chile de árbol toasted, crumbled
  • Kosher or sea salt, to taste

As the slice of bread toasts, scoop out the avocado meat and slice.

If using the chile de árbol, toast it on a small skillet set over medium heat, a minute per side. Remove from heat, and chop or crumble.

Place the bread on a plate, lay avocado slices on top, sprinkle with the red pepper flakes or crumbled chile de árbol, and sprinkle salt to taste. Serve.
