Guacamole

I don’t know about you but I love Guacamole and it is very easy to make too.  Most of the time when people serve guacamole it is store brought and it never taste the same as fresh made.  Next time make it from scratch and it is healthy too.  It is very easy and takes about 10 minutes.

Guacamole

Ingredients

2 ripe avocados
2 tbsp finely chopped onion
1 garlic clove finely chopped (optional)
1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground pepper
1 plum tomatoes finely chopped
1 Serrano chilies seeded and minced (optional for spiciness)

Cut the avocado in half and remove pits. Set one pit aside. Chop one half of one of the avocados into small chunks and set aside.  With a spoon, scoop the soft flesh from peel of the remaining 3 halves into a bowl.  Add remaining ingredients except for tomatoes and avocado chunks and mash with a fork.

Stir in tomato and fold in avocado chunks, making sure not to mash them.  Remove to a serving dish and place the pit in the center. This decoration actually keeps the dip from turning brown.  Refrigerate if needed for a few hours.  Serve with chips.

If you want the dip spicy add the chilies.

Serves about 6 people.
