"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

1. Scoop avocado into a medium bowl. Add onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Mash well with a potato masher or fork, until no large chunks of avocado remain.
2. Add cucumber, Cotija and tomato. Stir with a fork to break up cheese and combine well. Serve garnished with chopped chili and a sprinkle of extra cheese.
TORTILLA CHIPS: Want to go all out and fry your own chips like at a Mexican restaurant? Start by lining a baking sheet with paper towels. Cut a stack of corn tortillas into sixths. In a large heavy skillet or pot, heat about 1-inch vegetable oil over medium heat 365 F. Add tortilla wedges to hot oil in small batches. Cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes, turning once. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels, then sprinkle lightly salt.

PREP TIPS: Warning: These tiny guys are kicky! In Mexico, they're called cola de rata (rat's tail) chiles, but in the States, they're usually marketed as an Asian ingredient.
