1/2 tsp. cumin
1/8 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. oregano, crumble between fingers to break into smaller pieces

Cut the avocados in half lengthwise, around the pit. Set aside the pits but do not throw away. Scoop out the avocado into a medium bowl and throw away the peel. Mash avocados in bowl with a whisk.
