Tasty Guacamole

Guacamole is a wonderful accompaniment to southwestern and Mexican food.  It is also a wonderful dip on its own and can even be used as a spread on sandwiches as well. It isn’t complicated to make and you can make it spicy or not depending upon your taste. One of the things that makes it delicious is the use of fresh ingredients. We go to Mexico almost every year and we enjoy getting guacamole every time that we do and enjoy the large portions that we get.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Avocados – diced
  • 1 Medium Tomato – finely diced
  • 1 Jalapeno – finely diced (seeds removed if you don’t want it spicy)
  • 1 Garlic Clove – minced
  • 1 tbsp Red or Yellow Onion – finely diced
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Cut the avocados in half, using your knife to carve around the large seed.  Twist the avocado to separate the two halves, the seed will remain in one of the halves.  Using a knife, carefully chop into the seed so that the knife is slightly embedded.  Twist the knife to remove the seed and carefully remove the seed from the knife blade.  Use a spoon to separate the flesh of the avocado from the skin by tracing the spoon along the inside of the skin and place the flesh into a medium bowl.  You can dice the avocado prior to removing it from the skin or after it is in the bowl.  Add the rest of ingredients and mix thoroughly.  If you prefer a creamy guacamole, you can mash the avocado dices as you stir, or leave some of the dices whole if you prefer a chunkier guacamole.  Serve with chips.
