Guacamole Recipe - Avocado based Dip


I love to prepare something special on Sundays.This Sunday special is guacamole recipe  ( this is a link to a original recipe).Happy that I have given it a try after reading it. Its a heavenly taste. This Avocado based dip, is originally from mexico. Original recipe is very simple, just mash the avocados , sprinkle with lime juice, salt and Mix it well.. Isn't it Easy ?
  You can season this avocado dip with onions, tomatoes, spices like chilies, black pepper etc as per your choice.This dip is served with tortilla chips. You can use this dip as toast spread too. 
  Want to check out my earlier post, similar recipe of Avocado-Avocado Sandwich ??


Ingredients:
2 ripe avocados
salt to taste
1-2 tbsp of fresh lime juice 
2 tbsp finely chopped onion 
1-2 green chilies, remove stems and seeds and chop them finely
2 tbsp coriander leaves (use only leaves and tender stems), finely chopped
1/2 - 1 tsp of black pepper powder
1/2 ripe tomato, (remove seeds and pulp, chop it finely)


Method:

  • Cut the avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avocado flesh using a spoon, place  it in a mixing bowl. 
     

  • Using a fork or hand, roughly mash the avocado to make the dip little chunky. (if you want smooth dip then use food processor) 
  • Sprinkle salt and lime (or lemon) juice on top of mashed avocados. lime juice will help delay the avocados from turning brown. Gently mix it.
  • Now add chopped onion, coriander, black pepper and chopped chilies. Mix it well again.(Be careful on the quantity of green chilies you add , Chilies vary individually in their hotness.)
     

  • Cover the lid and refrigerate it for an hour.(You can also transfer the mixture into a air tight container and refrigerate it).After taking it out from fridge, serve within 5-6 mins.
  •  Add chopped tomato to the guacamole and mix it gently.Serve this dip along with tortilla chips .You can use this as toast spread also.
     

                              
Tips:
Don't preserve this dip in a refrigerator for long. Consume within few hours after the preparation.After you take out from fridge , add tomatoes and serve within 5 minutes.
