Guacamole is a classic Mexican dip that is made with mashed avocado, lime juice, and various seasonings. It’s a delicious and healthy addition to any meal and is perfect for dipping chips, veggies, or spreading on sandwiches and tacos. This guide will walk you through the steps to make a classic guacamole recipe.
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1/2 red onion, finely diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely diced
- 1/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup of fresh lime juice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.
- In a large bowl, mash the avocado with a fork or a potato masher until it reaches your desired consistency.
- Add the diced red onion, minced garlic, diced jalapeño, chopped cilantro, and lime juice to the bowl with the avocado. Mix well.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
- Use ripe avocados for the best flavor and texture.
- If you prefer a smoother guacamole, you can also blend the ingredients in a food processor.
- You can also add additional ingredients such as diced tomatoes, chopped bacon, or crumbled queso fresco to add more flavor and texture.
Note: The key to a great guacamole is to use fresh and high-quality ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed before serving. Guacamole is best served fresh, so it’s best to make it shortly before serving. It will last for about 2-3 days in the refrigerator if covered with plastic wrap.
