Guacamole !



Guacamole or just guac (pronunces gwak) is an Avocado based dip in Mexican cuisine and also used as an condiment in American Cuisine. Traditional Guacamoles called for only avocados that are mashed with mortar n pestle and seasoned with salt n pepper. But nowadays many other stuff like onions, tomatoes, chilli peppers, lime juice , cilantro and sometimes jalapenos are also added.
Lime juice definitely gives that extra kick to the guacamole. It needs no cooking and indeed a refreshing dip.



INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ripe Avocado
  • 1/2 small tomato (seeds and flesh removed)
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 chilli pepper
  • fistful of chopped coriander
  • 1/2 a lime
  • salt to taste
  • pinch of black pepper powder
STEPS
  • Chop onion, tomato, chilli and cilantro finely.
  • Destone the avocado and peel the skin off.
  • Chop them fine and press them with back of a fork to mash them.

  •  In a bowl, combine the mashed avocados, onion, chilli ,cilantro and chilli.
  • Add salt and pepper as per taste.
  • Squeeze lot of lime juice and mix everything well.


NOTES
  • After peeling and mashing the avocados use it immediately to make the guacamole. Else it will tun brown or black.
  • This is a very simple version, feel free to add some jalapenos, garlic and basil too.
  • Adjust lime and chilli as per taste.
  • I used normal red chilli, so I removed the seeds and veins to make it less hot. If you get chilli peppers that is perfect to use.
  • Serve with Nachos, use in burritos n tacos, or just as a sandwich spread or for toast.




With Love,
