What is guacamole?
Well, guacamole is a dip or spread, with a base of avocados that was developed by the Aztecs in Mexico.
However, as it found its way to America it’s now used in salads, as a condiment, or as a dip.
There are multiple brands and places to buy a guacamole spread or dip, but making it at home using fresh ingredients is my preferred method.
That being said, let’s get into the recipe.
- chopping board
- medium to a large bowl
- 3 avocados peeled and pitted
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/2 cup diced onions
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 3 Tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
- 2 Roma tomatoes diced
- Place your avocados in a medium to large bowl and mash them.
- Then add your lime juice and salt. Mix.
- Next dump you chopped onions, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic into the bowl and stir.
For full flavor cover and refrigerate 1 hour. If you don’t want to wait you can serve immediately.
Note: To keep your guacamole from turning brown lightly brush the surfaces and edges with lime juice. Then, tightly wrap your bowl or airtight container with plastic wrap and store in your refrigerator. Eat within two to three days.
This fresh guacamole is perfect to use with a seven-layer taco dip or served with chips. Bring it to a party or add it to the menu when you have a taco night.
That’s it! Your newest recipe to add to your growing cookbook. Other than shopping for your ingredients there is no need to go outside your home to acquire your favorite dip. Make and take or enjoy right now.
