1 tbs unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups white onion roughly chopped

1 cup cilantro leaves and upper part of stems only

3 ripe avocados halved, pitted, meat scooped out and diced

1 1/2 cups crumbled tortilla chips pita chips, or bread croutons

  4. Serve hot or chilled. 
  5. Garnish with tortilla crisps or croutons and cheese.
