Guacamole - Avocado Dip

Guacamole is Mexican style Dip made with Avocado.  This perfectly blends into your Mexican plate and with out this, the famous Mexican fajita's or burritos won't be complete. This recipe is so simple that even your kids can make it for you, and the ingredients are the common staples that you can find in your pantry.

Guacamole

Avocado is a rich in omega3 and amino acids, this is also known as Vegan Butter. If you don't eat fish, then this  vegetable does  fill in your omega 3 need. Though this has lot of good fat, it is advised not to consume more than 2 avocados per week for healthy results. The avocado it self tastes bland (just like paneer) but When this buttery taste of avocado accompanies with right amount of spice and citrus, your Chips and Sticks will thank you. ;-). I do use this as a spread on my sandwiches. or i replace the cheese slice with this on my burgers. So here is the recipe for you, Enjoy!


Ingredients:
Avocado - 1 medium ripe
Red Onion - 1/2 medium
Tomato - 1 ripe medium
salt - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1 tsp
lime juice - 1 tsp
Jalapeno  - 1 medium (or Green Chili - 2 medium)
Cilantro - 2 Tbsp


Method:
  1. Cut the Avocado into half. Pit out the Seed. And spoon around and take away the peel.Cut into Cubes.
  2. Mash the Avocado with spoon or place it in the ziplock bag and mash it. (Trust me, your kids will do justice to this part.)
  3. Take a medium bowl and add Chopped Red onion, Chopped Tomato and sliced green chili.
  4. Add salt and black pepper and mix it well. add the mashed Avocado. Add lime juice and cilantro and mix it well.


Today I don't have cilantro handy, my home grown spring onions comes to rescue, in this recipe.

That's it, now your yummilicious Avocado Dip called Guacamole is ready. Enjoy your crunch and munch with this healthy dip. :-)

The only trick with this Dip is it won't last long as it oxidizes quickly and gets turn into black and loose it freshness if you leave it open. I don't think that will be a problem when you have a hungry hubby comes home from office. ;-)

Note: 
The perfect taste of this dip depends on the ripeness of your avocado. select a medium riped avocado to make this dip.
