Perfect Guacamole

Guacamole is a vibrant and flavorful Mexican dip, one of the most popular dips worldwide. It is very easy to prepare and is suitable for any occasion. It is a perfect appetizer that can be served with tortilla chips for a great texture.

The key to a delicious guacamole is the ripe avocados that can be mashed easily by simply using a fork. Lime juice plays a crucial role in preventing avocado oxidation, making it a must-not-skip ingredient. While guacamole is best when served immediately, it can still be stored in the refrigerator for up to one day.

How to make Guacamole

Place the avocado in a bowl and sprinkle it with lime juice. Use a fork to mash the avocado until it reaches an almost smooth consistency.

Gently fold in the onion, jalapeno, tomato, cilantro, and season with salt and pepper to your taste. If you desire more spice, you can add extra jalapeno.

Cover the guacamole with plastic wrap directly on its surface to prevent oxidation. Refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve.

This Guacamole is a versatile party guest, perfect for dipping crunchy chips or topping tacos. The bright green color makes it look as good as it tastes. Guacamole is an easy mix of a few ingredients, bringing a burst of flavor to your snack time or gatherings.

    I have made guacamole for many years (having spent SO much time in Colorado – 35+ years). I love it, ate it before we knew it was a healthy thing (ha ha). I usually have lemons or lemon juice around and have very often substituted the lime for lemon and it works just the same as would the lime. This is pretty much how I have always made it, with the addition of some garlic (don’t go over the top though). LOVE!!!!!
