Guacamole is a great Mexican dip that is made of avocados. Avocado on its own is very plain tasting but jumps to life mixed with these spices. Serve them with tortilla chips and we bet you wont stop the munching.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Onion (finely chopped): 2 tablespoons
Garlic (finely chopped): 1 pod
Green Chilies (chopped): 2
Lemon Juice: 1/2 lemon
Salt to taste
* The trick with good guacamole is getting a good avocado. You should press and check to see if its slightly ripe. Overripe ones when you open are more brown than green. The key is to find the flesh all green and soft.
Finely chop the onions, garlic and green chilies. We usually do it in the food chopper on one single run. Cut the avocado and deseed it. Scoop the flesh out and run it in the mixer just once to get it all smooth.
You could even mix it with a spoon and add it to the chopped onions, garlic and green chilies. Finally add the salt and lemon juice to your taste. You could even add some chopped fresh cilantro leaves if you like.
The dip is ready to be served.
